Stovetop Chicken and Rice

Quick Stovetop Chicken and Rice brings together tender protein and hearty grains, creating a satisfying meal. When you add zucchini to the mix, it introduces a burst of freshness, color, and texture, elevating the dish to new heights.


Start by heating butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sautéing onions until softened.


Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, stirring frequently. Create space in the pan and melt the remaining butter, then add rice and sauté for a few minutes.


Stir in garlic and salt until fragrant. Gradually pour in chicken broth, bringing the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer without stirring for 12 minutes.


Add bell pepper and zucchini, stir, cover, and cook for an additional 8 minutes until both vegetables and rice are tender.


Adjust seasoning, and serve immediately for a delicious and hassle-free meal.
