Chicken & Edamame with Brown Rice & Topped with an Orange-Citrus Dressing

If you're looking for a quick and healthy dinner, then stop right here!  You've found it!

Not only was this dish seriously delicious, but I was also able to have it prepared and on the dinner table in about 30 minutes.  It was wonderful!  I could have saved even more time by pre-grilling the chicken and then rewarming it in the microwave when I was ready. 

Another recipe bonus is that it makes more than enough!  This way you can pack it up and take it to work with you for some extra healthy lunches.

Cook the brown rice according to package directions.
