Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 large carrots, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup frozen non-gmo corn
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 cups long-grain Basmati rice
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, for serving

Instructions

  1. In a dutch oven or heavy pot, heat the olive oil and cook the garlic for 1 minute, then add the onions and saute until the onions are soft and golden (about 5 minutes)
  2. Add the cubed chicken and oregano, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sautee with the cooked garlic and onions until chicken is completely cooked through and lightly golden.
  3. Add the vegetables and mix with the chicken, then add the rice to the pot, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the chicken broth, and mix all the ingredients together. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for 15 minutes, until rice is fully cooked.
  5. Stir in the parmesan cheese to give the dish some creaminess (or you can leave this part out). Sprinkle with fresh parsley before you serve, if you desire
