We all have those busy weeknight when cooking feels like an unnecessary chore. We often try to come up with quick solutions so that we can get out of the kitchen as soon as possible. Well, here’s an easy and quick One Pot Tomato Basil Chicken Rice Recipe by Alida Ryder to save your day!

For this lovely dish you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Chicken thighs
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Rice
  • White wine/chicken stock/water
  • Tomatoes
  • Chicken stock
  • Tomato paste
  • Basil
  • Lemon juice
  • Parmesan cheese to serve

First, in a large, deep frying/sauté pan, heat a splash of olive oil then brown the chicken on all sides then remove from the pan and add the onion and garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add the rice and white wine, allowing the wine to reduce while deglazing the bottom of the pan before adding the chopped tomatoes, chicken stock and tomato paste with the basil and season generously then place the chicken on top of the rice.

Cover with a lid and reduce the temperature. Allow to simmer until the rice has absorbed all the liquid and is cooked to your preference. Adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper and lemon then serve with fresh basil and grated Parmesan. It’s as quick and simple as that!
