Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken breasts without skin, uncooked, (about 4 pieces)
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups short-grain white rice, uncooked
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lb fresh brussel sprouts

Directions

  • Heat oil in a large deep oven proof skillet that has a tight fitting lid. Brown chicken pieces in hot oil, turning to brown on all sides. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Add the second Tbsp (15mL) of oil to the skillet and heat. Add garlic and onion and cook for 5 minutes, until onions are limp.
  • Add rice to the skillet and cook, stirring for 2 minutes, until all the rice kernels are coated with oil. Add cumin, pepper, and chicken broth, and stir to combine. Add brussels sprouts and mix to distribute evenly.
  • Flatten the rice with the back of a large spoon and place chicken pieces on top. Cover pan, and bake for 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Serve a mound of rice and brussels sprouts with a piece of chicken.
