Spicy One-Pot Chicken and Rice | Simple Dinner Recipe

In this recipe I will be sharing how I make a delicious one-pot chicken and rice dish which I've come to love for an easy-to-prepare dinner option. The heat from the tomatoes and cayenne pepper bring amazing flavours and you're sure to enjoy. Also the one-pot aspect of the dish makes clean-up convenient, which we can all appreciate! Be sure to give this a try for the next time you're looking to have the simplicity of chicken and rice with but with a great kick!

Serves: 2 

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1.5 tomatoes
  • 1-2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup long grain rice (preferably basmati)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat oven to 350F
2. Heat an oven safe high sided skillet on medium high heat. 
3. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper
4. Add chicken to pan and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side until nice and brown. Set chicken aside on a plate.
5. In the same pan, add your onion and garlic and saute tender. Season with salt and pepper and add in half of your cayenne pepper and toast the spices for about 1 minute while continuously stirring. 
6. Add in your tomatoes and rest of your cayenne pepper and cook until tomotoes start to turn mushy and soft.
7. Add in your rice and saute for about a minute. Next add in your wine to deglaze the pan and scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan
8. Add in your chicken broth, stir and when it comes up to a simmer, nestle in your chicken on top along with any resting juices. 
9. Cover with a tight fitting lid and place in oven for 40 minutes. 
10. Remove lid and garnish with fresh parsley if you like. Enjoy!
