One Pot Lemon Herb Chicken & Rice

4 servings


30 minutes

total time


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 tablespoons butter

salt and pepper to taste

2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

1 cup uncooked white rice

2 ¼ cups chicken broth (I used low sodium)

juice of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet or pan (one that has a lid). Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste, and Italian seasoning. Brown chicken in the butter for 1-2 minutes on each side. (Chicken shouldn't be cooked through at this point) Transfer chicken to a plate.

Add rice, chicken broth, lemon juice, and remaining Italian seasoning to the pan (no need to clean it first). Place chicken on top, then cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 20-25 minutes until liquid is dissolved.

Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro if desired and lemon wedges for squeezing. Serve immediately.


• Add a chopped yellow onion at the first step with chicken.

• Use Trader Joe’s sofrito spices.

• Steam a bag of green beans on top.
