I'm just getting into the diet side of things.

Are there some tried and true combinations of food that compliment each other, and provide all the amino acids? I was told once that chicken and rice together do this. What are some others?

I think you're thinking about vegetarian sources of protein/amino acids. vegetable protein isn't complete in its amino acid profile. meat, chicken, dairy, eggs...basically ALL animal sources are complete.

so chicken on its own is complete and needs no pairing. rice and beans will combine to make a complete amino profile.

I paired up a huge slab of chicken with some bread crumbs after dipping it in egg. Delicious.

Well see there? I learned something I didn't know.
Thanks, that makes it a bit easier.
