Spicy Rice With Chicken Breasts And Vegetables

Recipe's story

This recipe is one that I used to frequently make when I was trying to lose weight. It helped me lose weight, be healthy while still being able to eat things I liked. I used to hate vegetables and now I love them. I’m sharing this recipe in hopes of inspiring people that are like me to try out vegetables in a new way. I used Berbere spice because it a nice balance between spicy and richness, but if you like something more mild Xawaash is great as well.
