CHICKEN & RICE | easy & healthy one-pan recipe


Chicken and rice is an easy, healthy, one pan recipe that shines with bright Mediterranean flavors. Juicy chicken thighs are soaked in a citrusy, lemon dijon marinade then baked with fluffy rice.

One pan dinners are they the best. They make dinner a breeze, yet they’re satisfying enough to eat as leftovers. Though count yourself lucky if you happen to have any leftovers of this delicious meal.

This Mediterranean one pan chicken and rice is the perfect cozy family meal that I’m confident you’ll make again and again. Enjoy!

    I'm back! I took a mini week-long break to visit my mom and if felt so good. 🙂 This recipe is unbelievably tasty, I'm confident the whole family will gobble it up. And if you're one person, you can make it too! Just meal prep the leftovers and freeze, that's what I did. 🙂 xo – Lisa

    when I say this is the most delicious one pot chicken and rice recipe… this is so amazing, I made this last night and my housemates were on it they were drooling and wanting a pieces. It’s so amazing

  17. Sherree Rentola says

    I don't care for dark meat chicken, I wonder if you could make it with chicken breast instead? I am sure that you would need to cook it a bit longer as the breasts are larger. I wonder how much of the flavor would be lost if you used boneless, skinless chicken breasts rather than the bone in variety?

  18. Wonder Woman says

    Found this recipe so calming to watch. You make it look so easy!

  19. Sharon Lanteri says

    Hi Lisa
    This looks amazing, I'm definately giving it a try. Just wondering if your chicken thighs are with or without the bone in?

  20. Mr Huff'n'Puff says

    Subscribed I'm an adventurous eater and will try anything, but chicken and rice has to be my all time favorite. It does so much more than nourish the body, it feeds the soul! (Maybe it's a southern thang…). 3 things caught my attention. You aren't afraid of the heat and you got some color on the chicken, you used thighs (yes ma'am!) and you made it lemmon forward. Chicken pairs well with so many things but chicken + lemmon goes together like Fred and Ginger (I'm not that old, just have cable TV.) Made this last night and it was delish! Thank you for sharing. Peace Love and Bobby Sherman. (there, that's how old I am! :D)

  27. deeba Fathima says

    I tried this recipe it cane out so was delicious yummilicious….I m happy
    I want to make it again for 3 cups of rice….how long should I keep it in oven…how much time it would take?

  28. K Whiteley says

    This was really delicious. I used chicken breasts cut in half since I didn't have thighs and I added in cut up asparagus. It is so delicious and an easy weeknight meal. Thanks!!
