  • For the chicken:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • Lemon slices for garnish
  • For the rice:
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 2 1/4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Instructions

  1. Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet or pan (one that has a lid). Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste, and Italian seasoning. Brown chicken in the butter for 1-2 minutes on each side. (Chicken shouldn’t be cooked through at this point) Transfer chicken to a plate.
  2. Add rice, chicken broth, lemon juice, and remaining Italian seasoning to the pan (no need to clean it first). Place chicken on top, then cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 20-25 minutes until liquid is dissolved.
