Easy Almond Chicken and Rice



When it's just toooooo hot to cook, or you're really in a hurry, this is my go to dish.  Fabulous almond chicken/brocolli/rice pilaf.

Start with a package of Rice Pilaf and cook as directed except reduce water to 1 3/4 cups and add 2 cubed bonesless-skinned chicken breast.


 While this is simmering in the skillet steam some frozen broccoli, making sure to not overcook.


 Rice Pilaf and chicken simmering for the recommended time of 17 to 25 min.  Keep covered while cooking.


When the Rice Pilaf is done, stir in the broccoli, a couple of dashes of soy sauce (to taste) and a handfull of slivered almonds.


Serve and enjoy.  Super easy and super fast for all those hot or busy days.

  1. I'm all for quick and easy meals, Marty. This looks very good. I have a family member who doesn't like broccoli
    but this might persuade him to give broccoli another chance. Thanks for the recipe. Shannon

  7. This sounds like the perfect "lazy hot day and I don't want to stand in a hot kitchen" meal. A bonus is that we happen to love all the ingredients.
