Chicken & Rice Bowl - Only 1 Pan Needed!

March 18, 2019

This dish may be my current favorite because of its simplicity! Just throw everything in a pan, let it simmer, and you are done! Isn't it nice to make a healthy and fulfilling meal without a huge clean up required? I think so! 


Also, this is a great recipe to use up whatever random items in your fridge need to be used up. Most of us probably have some rice hidden in our pantry, a source of protein like chicken, a can of random beans, and  an assortment of veggies. Use them all up in this recipe to minimize food waste and create a delicious meal!

  • chicken thighs

  • 1 diced green onion

  • 1 avocado

  • rice, 1 cup

  • 1 can of red kidney beans

  • 1 can of corn  

  • lime (juice and peel)

  • 10 cherry tomatoes (halved)

  • olive oil

  • ½ cup white wine

  • 1 cup water with a bouillon cube (or 1 cup of broth)





  1. On medium-high, heat olive oil in a pan. Cook chicken thighs until cooked through. Add salt and pepper while it cooks. Once cooked, set aside.

  2. In the same pan, add onion, tomatoes, and rice on medium-low. Add more oil if needed. Sauté for a few minutes.

  3. Add white wine to pan. Then add the broth.  

  4. Add some lime peel.

  5. Add corn and beans. Mix well. Cover the pan with a lid and let it simmer on low for 15-20minutes.

  6. Add the sliced avocado and lime on top, and serve!
