Fiesta Chicken and Rice
Cooking chicken and rice in the same pan sounds appealing, but not if the chicken is rubbery, the rice is mushy, and the flavor is bland.
Why This Recipe Works
For a convenient chicken and rice recipe, we used quick-cooking boneless, skinless chicken breasts and prepared our rice in the same skillet we used to brown the chicken. Cooking both components of our Fiesta Chicken and Rice recipe in the same pan gave us a one-dish meal, but since the chicken was fully cooked before the rice, we pulled it from the pan midway through and tented it with foil while the rice finished cooking.
