    Lemongrass Chicken

    In a ceramic container, whisk together all ingredients except chicken. Add chicken and stir to coat evenly with marinade. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour up to 24 hours.

    Cook rice per package instruction. Once the rice is cooked, transfer to a parchment-lined pan and spread to cool. Leave uncovered to slightly dry.

    In a large pan over medium-high heat, add Wesson Canola Oil.

    Once the oil is hot, reduce to medium heat, and add turmeric and toast for 30 seconds, stirring continuously, careful not to burn.

    Add carrots, green bell peppers, red onion, and peas. Sauté for 1 minute, stirring continuously. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
