Chicken, broccolli and wholegrain rice - Plain?

So I have a little bit of a menu plan from the PT at boot camp which I am following closely and Monday suggests chicken, broccoli and rice yet plain rice doesn't appeal to me... wouldn't that be a little dry?

Any ideas what would go well with this dish that is 'clean' or as close to as possible.

Could you not do it all as a stir fry? Swap the rice for noodles possibly. Does seem to be screaming out for some strong flavors to be added.

might inspire a bit

some nice broccoli slaw recipes as well. All would go nice with the chicken even if you cant marinade it in buttermilk, cover in breadcrumbs and spices then deep fry

It was part of my diet plan so I think I needed to stick with the rice. I ended up frying the broccoli in some flavours like I did with this recipe *click here* instead and it all served up pretty well together in the end.

Think I do need to explore a little more with some flavouring ideas! Thanks for the link Paul
