INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch thick strips
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (or sub more olive oil)
  • 1 small onion, chopped (see notes)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups Minute brown rice (see notes)
  • 2 (5 oz.) packages fresh spinach leaves or baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and onion and sauté for 7-8 minutes, turning chicken pieces once.
  3. Add garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds.
  4. Add broth and bring to a boil. (I turn the heat up to high to help it go faster.) Stir in rice, then cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove lid, stir in spinach, then cover and remove the pan from the heat. Let sit for 5 minutes or until liquid is mostly absorbed. (See notes for troubleshooting tips.) Stir in spinach to help it wilt.
  6. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.
