What's For Dinner? Lemon Herb Chicken & Rice

This one pot Lemon Herb Chicken & Rice is made even easier with a little help from Litehouse Lemon Herb Dressing and Marinade.

With all the holiday hustle and bustle I've been looking for no fuss meals this month.  I'm really getting into these one pot dinners!  Everything cooks in one pot so clean up is a breeze.  Who needs a pile of dishes to wash when there's a pile of presents to wrap!  With only a handful of ingredients you can create a dinner the whole family will love.  Lemon Herb Dressing and Marinade creates a nice zing to the chicken and the herb infused broth soaks right into the rice while it's cooking.

When preparing this recipe, choose a skillet with a tight fitting lid.  You'll want to make sure the chicken and rice is left undisturbed.  No need to flip or fuss.  

Litehouse Organic Lemon Herb Dressing and Marinade

To ensure you get a nice color on your chicken go ahead and brown it for a few minutes after it marinates.  Then you simply set it aside for a few minutes while stirring the rest of the ingredients in the same skillet.  Nestle the chicken back into the rice and throw a lid on it.  That's it!  I choose boneless chicken thighs because they are so forgiving if you accidently forget to set the timer and over cook them.

Happy holidays to all!

Directions

Marinate the chicken in the organic lemon and herb dressing for at least two hours or overnight.

Melt the butter over medium heat in a skillet.  You will need one with a tight fitting lid.

Cook the chicken until it's browned on one side, about 4-5 minutes.  Flip and cook a minute more.  Transfer the chicken to a plate.

Place the chicken back into the rice and add the lemon slices around the pan. 

Cover and simmer 25-30 minutes.
