Ingredients

  • 1 cup rice

  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 2 cups hot water

  • 1 (8 ounce) package frozen broccoli

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons onion powder

  • 1 large onion, diced

  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  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.
