We love a delicious chicken and rice dinner! Especially one that’s ready in half the time, thanks to our quick-cooking, 10-minute rice. Loaded with flavor, this complete meal couldn’t be easier to make. Treat yourself and your family tonight with this Lemon Pepper Chicken and Rice dish.
Prepare rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add to skillet and brown for 3 minutes on each side. Set aside.
Add mushrooms, broth and lemon juice to skillet. Cook for 4 minutes, until mushrooms begin to soften.
Return chicken to skillet. Cover and simmer on low for 5 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
Stir in rice. Serve garnished with green onions and lemon zest.
For a short-cut, substitute the chicken breasts in the recipe for chopped rotisserie chicken and add to the skillet with the mushrooms. This will allow you to omit 5 minutes of simmer time.
Looking for a vegetarian alternative? Swap in tofu, tempeh or chickpeas for the chicken.
