One Pan Chicken Rice Veggies

One Pan Chicken Rice Veggies-7-poppopcooks.com

You will like this One Pan Chicken Rice Veggies recipe for those weeknights when you want it to be quick and easy-but-from the stove not the microwave.

We always make enough of this one so we will have some leftovers that we can zip lock and freeze. The recipe shows 2 servings, but, it should give you some good leftovers.

If you always have chicken tenders in the freezer just defrost a few in the microwave and cut them into the size chunks that you want. Put a large skillet on at medium high with about four tablespoons of EVOO. Then into the skillet they go. Lightly sprinkle some salt and pepper.

BTW-if you use leftover chicken that has already been cooked just cut it up and add it with the vegetables. Speaking of which just use any veggies that you have on hand. It doesn’t have to be the stuff that you see here. This is what we had on hand so what you see is what we got. While the chicken is cooking cut up the veggies. Todays melange is onions, fresh carrots, frozen broccoli florets and frozen corn.

When the chicken is brown all around add the veggies and the spices.

Toss it all together and toss a few more times as it all cooks a little. When the onions just barely start to get soft and translucent on the edges add the rice, salt, pepper and the broth. Mix it all together and mix it a few more times as it is heating up to a simmer.

In a small bowl put about two tablespoons of flour and eyeball the same amount of cold water. Whisk it together and when the broth has reached a steady simmer whisk in the flour and water then mix it all up. Let it simmer for about five more minutes stirring regularly. Then take out and chew on a piece of any of the veggies to see if they are done the way YOU like them. And, if it needs anymore salt. When they are ready go ahead and serve up your One Pan Chicken Rice Veggies.

We garnished with some baby spinach. Gammy wanted  a chilled California Chardonnay so guess what we had. AND I multi-tasked and got some of Poppop’s homemade bread dough from the fridge and speed-dialed a small loaf in the toaster oven.
