Lemon Herb Chicken Rice

Being a new mom I am still learning to juggle my time between the baby, catching up on lost sleep, home chores, socializing and most importantly blogging. I absolutely love a quick recipe that will save me time and this one fits the bill.

Preparation time – 30 min


500 g boneless chicken pieces

4 cloves of garlic chopped

1 large onion sliced

1 Lemon

1 Chicken soup cube

1 cup rice, white or brown ( I always use basmati rice)

2 stems of fresh rosemary

2 stems of fresh thyme

1 Salt and pepper

2 tbsp Butter


  • Heat a pan ( I use my le cruset for this dish) add in the butter and sauté the garlic & onions until soft.
  • Throw in the chicken and fry a bit.
  • Add rosemary & thyme leaves an stir.
  • Put the rice in and sauté for a minute.
  • Add chicken stock (double the quantity of rice)
  • Add Salt & pepper & squeeze half a lemon.
  • Lastly layer the lemon slices on the top and leave to cook on medium heat for about 15 min or until the rice is cooked completely.

Voila – your one pot Lemon Herb Chicken Rice is ready to be served.

*Note – you can add mushrooms or zucchini to this dish or of course any other veggies of your choice.

Bon Appetit!
