Seasame Brown Rice Salad

Here is what you'll need: 
1  cup  long-grain brown rice
2  cups  shredded cooked chicken breast
1/2  cup  shredded carrot
1/3  cup  sliced green onions
1/4  cup  dry-roasted peanuts, divided
1  tablespoon  chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1/2  teaspoon  salt
2  tablespoons  fresh lime juice
4  teaspoons  canola oil
1  teaspoon  dark sesame oil
2  garlic cloves, minced

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Transfer rice to a large bowl; fluff with a fork. Cool.

 Shred the carrot. 

 Chop the chives, peanuts and cilantro.

 Squeeze lime. 

 Chop garlic. 

 Combine juice and remaining ingredients in a small bowl.

 Boil chicken, transfer to cutting board and chop.

 Add chicken, carrot, onions, 2 tablespoons peanuts, 2 teaspoons cilantro, and salt to rice; toss to combine.

Whisk oil & juice mixture and pour over rice mixture. 

 This was good. It reminded me of fried rice, only healthier.
