One Pot Lemon Herb Chicken & Rice

Debbie Perez

Posted on October 21 2016

For the chicken
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
For the rice
  • 1 cup uncooked rice (white or brown)
  • 2¼ cups chicken broth (I used low-sodium)


  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.
  3. Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro if desired and lemon wedges for squeezing. Serve immediately.
