Lemony Mediterranean Chicken and Rice
We wanted lively flavors, moist chicken, and a no-fuss weeknight dinner. But in most recipes, these goals never align.
Why This Recipe Works
To speed up our Easy Mediterranean Chicken and Rice, we started with boneless, skinless chicken breasts, which required zero preparation. A salty marinade with garlic, oregano, lemon zest, and olive oil imparted rich Mediterranean flavors to the notoriously bland chicken breasts. Browning the chicken created a rich fond that we used to flavor the rice, which we were able to cook in a fraction of the time by parcooking it in the microwave.
