Chicken and Rice

What’s Cookin’ Good Lookin’?

This quick and easy Chicken and Rice recipe will have dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less!

Chicken and rice have always been a staple dinner in our home. You just can’t go wrong with chicken!

There are plenty of different chicken recipes I love to use but this one is the one I go to when we are running low on time and/or if we are in terrible need of a Costco run.

Here’s how I get dinner (and one the kid’s love) on the table in under 30 minutes.


Here’s what I use to feed 7 people, if your family isn’t as large as ours, you can most certainly cut this recipe in half.

  • 3 C. Long Grain White Rice
  • 3 C. Chicken Stock
  • 14 oz. can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 6 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1/4 C. Olive Oil
  • 5 Tbsp. Garlic Powder
  • 5 Tbsp. Onion Powder
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste


  1. Pour 3 cups of rice into a strainer and rinse rice until water runs clear.
  2. Pour rice into rice cooker and add theĀ Chicken Stock, 1/4 cup of the diced tomatoes (reserve the rest for the chicken), and salt and pepper to taste (I use 3 Tbsp). Mix well, turn the rice cooker on and let it do its thing!
  3. Heat skillet over medium heat. While the skillet is getting nice and hot, take the chicken out and start piercing it several times with a fork or a knife (this will help the chicken soak in the liquid and make it nice and moist).
  4. Pour olive oil into the skillet and add the rest of the can of tomatoes. Add 1 Tbsp. of garlic and onion powders, 1 Tbsp. salt, and 1/2 Tbsp. pepper to tomatoes and stir.
  5. Place the chicken on top of tomatoes and season chicken with 2 Tbsp. of the garlic powder, onion powder, 1 Tbsp. salt, and 1/2 Tbsp. pepper. (I know this sounds like a lot of salt but trust me, the liquid that is left in the pan keeps most of it).
  6. Cover and cook for 10 min. Flip chicken over and repeat step 5. Cook another 10 minutes.
  7. Once the chicken is done, your rice should also be done. Serve. Eat. Enjoy. šŸ™‚
