One Pan Chicken And Brown Rice With Vegetables
One Pan Chicken And Brown Rice With Vegetables – simple and effortless meal, made on the stove top in just one pan. Loaded with flavor.
Happy Friday Guys!
How was your week?
My plan was to share this recipe on Wednesday, right after I made it the day before, but I had a little accident 🙂
Did I mention how done I am with winter???
Even though this winter has not been terrible, I can’t wait for the weather to warm up.
And this is not gonna happen for another 2 months!
On Tuesday I slipped on some black ice in front of the house and fell!
I guess I need to have my coffee, before going out and watch my step!
Now my whole left side hurts and I haven’t done much for the last 2 days.
I’m so glad I feel better today!
Now about this simple dish – One Pan Chicken And Brown Rice With Vegetables, made with chicken breast, brown rice, mushrooms and peas in just one pan.
Perfect for a weeknight dinner, because it only takes 15 minutes to make.
You can use chicken thighs instead, but I’ve been into chicken breast lately. And brown rice.
I’ve been swapping brown rice and whole wheat pasta for their white alternatives in recipes for the last few months and I’m happy with the results.
Here is how I cooked this dish in one skillet:
I first cooked the seasoned chicken in the skillet for 3-4 minutes per side, until almost fully cooked.
Then I transferred it to a plate, to make room in the skillet for the rice.
Then I cooked the rice, shallot and mushrooms similar to how I cook rice pilaf.
I then added the peas and chicken to the pan and cooked covered for 4-5 more minutes.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
I’ll try to catch up with work and cleaning this weekend!

I am so done with winter too, and January has been pretty mild. I’m afraid to see what February will bring! And so sorry you fell but glad you’re ok. I did that on New Year’s Eve and it took three weeks for my leg to feel better, ouch! This one pan meal looks SO good! I love the brown rice and veggies. perfect comfort food!
Oh wow Mira. . .you need to watch out for that black ice. It’s the worst. Your incident reminds me of a little accident I had in college. I was on my way out the door for class. There was black ice on the stairs and the whole length of the sidewalk (unbeknownst to me). Well. . .my foot barely grazed the first step when I slipped down all the stairs and then down the full length of the sidewalk. Needless to say. . I was severely bruised and sore for days. Anyhow, I’m glad that you are on the mend and feeling better.
As for this dinner. .. this looks absolutely scrumptious. The Mr. has been on a hardcore work out routine and has lost a lot of weight. He is trying to put on muscle without getting too skinny so we are looking for ways to increase his good carbs (ala brown rice, sweet potatoes etc) while maintaining decent protein levels. This dish is perfect for that.
Thanks so much Lynn! I’m definitely doing a lot better today! OMG, sorry to hear about your accidnet… Black ice is dangerous, we do need to be more careful! Glad you like this one pan dinner!
Oooh, so sorry you hurt yourself, Mira! That must have been a nasty (and painful!) shock.
Good job you had this gorgeously simple and easy chicken and rice to cheer you up!
I’ve been wanting to experiment a bit with one pan chicken and rice dishes. This sounds like a perfect recipe to start with!

Oh no!! Hope you feeling better Mira! Please take care of yourself! This looks like a comfort meal, love the rice 🙂
I’m so sorry to hear you fell! I’m glad you’re feeling better though– that must’ve been a hard fall! This is a very comforting and healthy meal — I love these ingredients!
Oh no I’m so sorry to hear about your fall Mira, I’m glad you’re feeling better now <3. This chicken dish looks amazing, and I love that it's one pan. Pinned!!
This looks amazing! I love one pan meals, so quick an easy to make! Glad you’re feeling better, slipping on ice is awful.
