ONE POT YELLOW CHICKEN AND RICE — The whole family will love this simple but delicious chicken and rice casserole that bakes up in a 9×13 pan for easy clean-up. Sure to become a go-to recipe for busy week nights.
There’s nothing I love more than a quick and easy one-pot meal like this One Pot Yellow Chicken and Rice. The whole family loves it, and I’m not left with a sink full of dirty dishes!
This is the kind of dish I can throw together at the end of a long day, and I always have the ingredients on hand in my pantry and freezer.
Best of all, I can pretty much guarantee that any time I serve any version of chicken and rice, everyone will clean their plates and probably go back for seconds.
Of course, they might not eat the green beans or roasted carrots I serve on the side, but you can’t win them all, right?
Basically, this hearty and satisfying one-dish meal is a win-win for everybody!
The secret to this recipe cooking up so quickly is cutting the chicken into bite-sized chunks, rather than using whole chicken pieces.
This dish literally takes about 5 minutes to put together, and it cooks up in about 35 minutes. And like I said, you’ll only have one pan to wash. Dinner really doesn’t get any easier.
The rice in this recipe gets it’s beautiful yellow color from turmeric. Technically you could probably leave it out if you don’t have any handy, but it really does make the dish so much more appealing.
I also like to stir in a handful of chopped green onions just before serving for a bit of extra flavor and color. A handful of fresh chopped herbs would be lovely as well.
If you’re looking for a quick, easy and delicious dinner solution that’s perfect for any night of the week, you’re going to love this One Pot Yellow Chicken and Rice.
