Chicken & Spinach-Lemon Rice
Get started!


1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter

1 (16-ounce) package chicken breast tenders

1 teaspoon purchased minced garlic  

1 1/2 cups uncooked instant brown rice

1 (14 1/2-ounce) can chicken broth

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest

2 cups spinach leaves, cut into thin strips

 *Substitute 1 teaspoon (about 2 cloves) fresh minced garlic.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt butter in 12-inch skillet; add chicken tenders and garlic. Cook over medium heat, turning occasionally, 6-8 minutes, until browned and no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.

  2. STEP 2

    Add all remaining ingredients except spinach to same skillet. Cook over high heat, 2-3 minutes, until mixture comes to a boil. Cover; reduce heat to low. Cook, 8-10 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed. Stir in spinach. Serve chicken over rice immediately.

Tip #1

Because most spinach has dirt and sand attached to the leaves, packaged pre-washed spinach will help speed things along for you. All you need to do is measure and then cut into ribbons. Save the remaining for a mixed greens salad or wilted spinach or tuck into sandwiches in place of regular greens.
