Chicken Rice Vegetable One Pan Dinner

Chicken Rice Vegetable One Pan Dinner is an easy, delicious and comforting one pan meal that is on the table in about 25 minutes!

I have made a chicken over rice kind of dinner for several years. It was fast, but I made the sauce in one pan and the rice in another. I wanted to make a chicken and rice dish that is cooked in one pan, in 30 minutes or less. Thus the Chicken Rice Vegetable One Pan Dinner was born.

Another change I made from the dish I used to make was adding the frozen veggies. We used to eat our veggies on the side, dirtying yet another pan. So, while I didn’t cut down on the time, I cut down on the cleanup a lot. Something my husband loves, since he is the one that cleans up 99% of the time.

This dish is also very easy on the tummy, since it isn’t spicy and has chicken broth and rice. It is a great meal to feed the kids (or adults) if they aren’t feeling well, since it is a bit like chicken soup. It is also a wonderful meal to make on those nights when you are stretched for time. I mean, 25 minutes and dinner is on the table!

This Chicken Rice Vegetable One Pan Dinner is in our regular dinner rotation and we eat it a couple of times a month. It is also very affordable and you could certainly use boneless, skinless thighs, if you want to make it even more affordable.
