One Pot Spicy Asian Chicken and Rice #SundaySupper

This week #SundaySupper is going back to school!  Perfect timing since I really did go back to school this past week.  During the work week I try to find meals that take under 30 minutes to make and don’t use a million pans that we then have to wash.  When I came across a recipe for a one pot chicken dish that included rice and broccoli I couldn’t wait to try it.  The meal came together in under 30 minutes and as promised only used one pot.

There aren’t too many ingredients in this dish and I had most of them on hand.  I love the flavor of this meal.  The jalapenos give it some heat and the soy sauce and chicken broth really cook flavor into the rice and broccoli.  The chicken becomes tender while cooking under the lid.  I served it with eggrolls which made for a complete meal.

One Pot Spicy Asian Chicken and Rice  (adapted from The Balanced Baker)
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
½ onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 t. fresh ginger, grated
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 c. uncooked rice
1 ¾ c. chicken broth
¼ c. soy sauce
1 t. sesame oil
1 t. ginger
1 head broccoli, cut into florets 
     1.       In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat.
     2.      Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook for 4 minutes on each side.  Remove and transfer to a plate.
     3.      Add the onion, garlic, ginger, and jalapeno to the pan.  Sauté for 3 minutes.
     4.     Add the rice to the pan and stir for 1 minute to lightly toast the rice.
     5.      In a small bowl combine the broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger.  Pour into the pan and stir well to combine.
     6.     Bring the rice mixture to a simmer then turn the heat back to low.  Put the chicken back in the pan and top with broccoli florets.
     7.      Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 15 minutes or until the rice and chicken are both completely cooked.

  19. Lol, I concur with every other commenter here – I love the one-pottedness of this dish and you never can go wrong with big, bold Asian flavours. I can’t eat spicy foods (it was never a part of my diet as I was growing up) so I’d unfortunately have to hold the jalapeños. Otherwise, this is perfect!

  20. I LOVE one pot meals! I make something similar in terms of the chicken and broccoli, but never thought to throw it in WITH the rice. I’m trying this TONIGHT!
