One pot chicken and rice

I love the combination of chicken and rice in one pot, not to mention that it’s always a bonus when there are fewer dishes to wash. It’s really one of the easiest dishes to make. The chicken and rice cook together, and the result is truly delectable.
I love working the kitchen but sometimes I have to take shortcuts, and with four kids, believe me it happens a lot. These kinds of recipes make my life a whole lot easier, and also a whole lot tastier.

Makes 4 servings


1 kg chicken (not breast)
1 onion
2 tsp minced garlic
Tbsp tomato paste
2 cups mixed carrots and peas
1 cup basmati rice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp rotisserie chicken spice
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 Tbsp chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Salt (if needed, to taste)


1. Heat a pot with 3-4 Tbsp of oil and sauté the chicken for around a minute. Finely dice the onion and sprinkle over the chicken. Add the tomato paste[KT1] , sugar and spices and cover with around two cups of water, maybe a bit more.

2. Cook covered for around 40 minutes. Soak the rice for 15 minutes then drain.

3. Add the rice to the chicken along with the peas and carrots. Give the pot a shake so everything settles in the sauce. Bring to a boil, cover and lower the heat and cook for 30 minutes. Turn of the heat and leave covered for another 15 minutes.
