An easy one pot dinner that is packed with flavours.
  • 130g of chicken breast, whole or two large pieces
  • 1/2 tbs of butter or olive oil
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp of sazon seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup of basmati rice
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • 1/2 tbs of lemon juice (about half a lemon)
  • 1 tsp of sazon seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp of coriander (cilantro) to garnish
  1. Season the chicken with the sazon seasoning and salt and pepper. Use enough sazon seasoning to coat the chicken fairly evenly.
  2. Heat the butter or oil in a skillet or shallow pot with a lid on medium heat
  3. Brown the chicken pieces - only a couple of minutes. You aren't cooking the chicken but getting a nice bit of caramelization going.
  4. Remove the chicken to a plate.
  5. Add the rice to the pan and toss with the butter/oil and chicken juices in the pan.
  6. Add the chicken stock, lemon juice and the second lot of sazon seasoning and combine well.
  7. Put the chicken back into the skillet/pot, cover and turn down the heat to medium-low for about 15 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed.
  8. Top with coriander (cilantro) and lemon slices if you are taking photos and serve.
