  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Heat an oven-safe pot over medium-high heat; stir rice and 2 tablespoons oil together in the hot saucepan to coat the rice with oil. Pour hot water over the rice; bring to a boil and place a cover on the pot.
  3. Bake rice in preheated oven until the water is absorbed and rice is tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Place broccoli into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and season broccoli with salt and pepper.
  5. Heat remaining oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken to hot oil, season with garlic powder and onion powder. Saute chicken until completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Stir onion into the chicken; continue cooking until onions are soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.
  7. Spoon rice into the skillet; cook until lightly browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Stir broccoli into the rice mixture; sprinkle lemon zest and lemon juice over the mixture and stir. Top with Parmesan cheese.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

It was pretty easy to make and didn't take many ingredients. The chicken dried out. But it isn't good enough that I would make it again.

Skip the oven cooked rice part and just do it on the stove top or in a rice cooker. I opted to use fresh broccoli because it was in season and I happened to have boatloads of it, but I did not ...

Simple, easy and delicious! I made the rice in the traditional way. Served the dish with a lettuce, tomatoes and avocado salad with olive oil and white wine vinegar. It matched great.

Made this tonight for my family and it got 4 thumbs up. My usual pot for rice did not have a lid that was oven safe for this high so I just cooked it completely on the stovetop (simmer on mediu...

It was good! I feel like there were a lot of unnecessary steps, though. I felt I could just put thawed broccoli in with the chicken to cook instead of doing the whole steaming thing. I'd also ha...

My family loved it! I cooked the onion separately to get the flavor our andadded sweet baby peppers & strips of ginger! It was sooo good! I didn't mix the rice with the dish because it's kind of...

This is good. I would add salt and pepper for more seasoning next time. While the chicken was cooking I made the rice in a cooker and used microwaveable bag of broccoli. Easy and quick. Thanks!

This was very good and tasty. I really loved the lemony flavor of the rice and the melted parmesan. Will definitely be making again.

This was wonderful! I used steam in bag fresh broccoli and completely zested a medium lemon. I also tried to get every drop of juice out of that lemon, so our dish had a nice lemon flavor to...
