Chicken & Rice One Pot Meal

Don't you just love when a meal comes together in one pot?  I know I do!  I serve this yummy yet simple chicken and rice one pot meal with a side salad.

Chicken & Rice One Pot Meal

1 tbs olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
6 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups jasmine rice
4 cups chicken broth (gluten & dairy free)
2 tbs soy sauce (gluten free)
2 tbs honey
2 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs fresh parsley, chopped
salt & pepper to taste

In a large saute pan with a tight fitting lid, heat the olive oil.
Add the onion and bell pepper - Season lightly with salt and pepper.
Saute for a few minutes until the onions begin to soften.
Add the chicken thighs and garlic - Season lightly with salt and pepper.
Saute for a few minutes until the chicken is lightly browned.
Add the rice, broth, soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, and parsley.
Stir well.
Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.


  1. I LOVE meals like this!! My mom used to make a chicken soup meal in the crock pot when I was growing up! It was so good! THis sounds similar to it! I think I'll have to give it a try!! :-) I hope you're having a great day!

  2. Carrie - I have a chicken and rice soup that turns out so creamy and good... Actually I have a bunch of variations on it because it is just so simple and comforting! I will have to share that recipe soon :) Thanks for the comment!

  3. I love one-pot meals. They are usually easy and I hate doing dishes :).

  4. Jasmine rice and chicken you just can't miss with this combo! Great recipe Stephanie.
