Knorrs Recipes – Knorrs Chicken and Rice Using Just One Skillet
We recently asked a busy Mom of 3, that works full time, what was her “go-to meal” when things got hectic and she was pressed for time – or just too tired to cook a meal…
The answer was braised chicken thighs cooked in one skillet with 2 packages of Knorrs Rice Medley and a handful of green peas.
Knorrs makes delicious blends of rice & spices for quick side dishes, but as we found out they are also perfect for a main dish entree. Always keep some packages in your pantry for when things get hectic!
Stop back often, as all of us here at DinnerPlanner.com will be asking busy Moms and Dads, “what’s your busy go-to meal,” and then giving them a try and posting them right here!
This is a quick and delicious dinner that uses Knorrs Side Dish Rice packets to get dinner on the table in no time.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 small onion, chopped fine
- 1-1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 2 packages Knorr Rice Medely
- 4-1/4 cups water
- 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Melt butter with the olive oil in a large skillet with a lid.
Over medium-high heat, cook chicken thighs on both sides until well-browned.
After both sides are well browned, cover; reduce heat and let cook for about 5-6 minutes.
Remove chicken to a plate and add the onions to the skillet. Cook onions for about 3-4 minutes.
Add packages of Knorrs Rice and peas to the skillet along with 4-1/4 cups of water. Stir and bring to a light boil. Sprinkle rice with Parmesan cheese.
Reduce heat and add the chicken back to the skillet.
Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Don’t rule out these delicious packages of Knorr’s Rice – The Rice Medley takes about 7 minutes and goes perfectly with most meats.
