  • 3 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-1.5 pounds chicken breast(s), cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • ½ Teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup minute rice
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, shredded


  • Melt butter on medium in a large pan. Stir in chopped onion and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add chopped chicken, garlic and seasonings. Stir together and cook until chicken is golden and no longer pink on the inside.
  • Add chicken broth and rice, stir together, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is fully cooked.
  • Stir in milk, peas and cheese. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Enjoy!



  • Be sure to cut chicken into bite sized pieces for faster browning/cooking.
  • We recommend Minute Rice to cut down on cook time. And brown rice will be more nutritious than white.
  • You can totally swap the peas for a veggie of your choice, i.e. broccoli, carrots, corn, beans, etc.
  • To plate...serve this chicken pea dish topped with extra parmesan cheese as desired.
