I really like sautéed foods because they are a great way to prepare a fast, nutritious and healthy meal, and they also allow us to play a lot with the ingredients. This recipe for chicken sauté with carrot and wild rice mix is a good example of my basic formula for this type of dish, which is to combine a protein with vegetables and some carbohydrate.

This time the carrots have been cut into sticks because it is easier to get them al dente, and I like a crunchy point that pairs well with the wild rice mixture.

Everyone can cook the ingredients to their liking, of course, although when it comes to sautéing of this type I always recommend not to exceed the cooking times.

Chicken sautéed with carrot and wild rice mixture should be served at the moment, although if we have leftovers we can give them a heat stroke when we are going to consume them. This is a very complete dish so we can simply accompany it with a salad to taste, and end the meal with a piece of fruit.
