Or, you could steam them and serve them with a sauce.
Make your own, or use your favorite jar from that specialty store.
Here are two of my favorites. I add grain like Bulgar or orzo, plop in a bowl, add the sauce on top, and there is a quick weeknight dinner. For protein, you could add nuts, or slivers of cheese, or the leftover chicken you meant to use.
Lemon and Olive oil sauce (topping for fish, vegetables, even pasta)
Place everything in a blender:
Juice and zest of two lemons
2 Tablespoons of good olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 bunch of Italian parsley, chopped fine
Any leftover can be refrigerated for a few days.
Asian sauce (over rice, or any grains and vegetables)
2 Tablespoons of soy sauce
1 T. sesame oil
1 T minced ginger
1T minced garlic
1 T lime juice
Mix in a Mason jar. Write the ingredients on the lid and you can reproduce this sauce in a flash.
