One Pot Chicken, Veggies and Brown Rice

When I'm not using freezer meals for dinner and I have time to cook a more time consuming meal, this is a go-to recipe for me.  But when you read how easy this recipe actually is, you might call me a liar, because it's actually not time consuming at all, it just tastes like it!

One Pot Chicken, Veggies and Brown Rice
Ingredients:
1 tbs olive oil
4 chicken breasts (you can also use bone-in pieces of chicken if you like!) cut in halves or thirds
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 large onion, 2 celery stalks, 2 medium carrots, cut into chucks
A little garlic for flava
About 1 cup chicken broth
1 cup cooked brown rice

 
Heat the oil in a deep pot. Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Place in hot oil.
Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 10-12 minutes.

 

Add the vegetables and broth.  You can use more or less broth depending on how you want this dish to turn out, soupish, chunky soupish or just veggies and rice.  Yes, soupish is a word.

Cover and let simmer over medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes or until the veggies are soft enough for ya.


Serve over cooked brown rice and enjoy!
