Chicken, Capsicum & Brown Rice


A one-pot wonder (and allergy friendly) – this chicken, capsicum and brown rice family meal only needs 10 minutes prep then you get to leave the oven to do the rest.

Fussy Eating Tip: To modify the recipe for older babies, toddlers or children who don’t like spoon-fed meals, finely chop the onions, red capsicum and chicken and once cooked, roll the mixture into small balls, crumb with breadcrumbs and shallow fry.
