We All have busy Schedules and hectic lives and most of us don't take car of ourselves when it comes to eating right...but, fear not because I am here to save you and your waist all in just 20 minutes!

This Mediterranean inspired broiled chicken is so quick and easy even the novice couldn't mess it up all you need is two for the chicken and one for the rice pilaf.

Mediterranean Broiled Chicken with Rice Pilaf
  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 1/4 Cup White Wine (Sauvignon Blanc is best)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Oregano
  • 3 Cloves diced Garlic
  • 1 Cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 Cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 Cup Rice (minute rice is the quickest)
  • 2 Tsp. Cilantro
  • Olive Oil
*Cast Iron Skillet works best for this!
*1 Quart saucepan.

Wash Chicken and pat dry on all sides with paper towel, salt and pepper both sides. *If the moisture isn't removed from the chicken, it won't brown properly.

With Medium to Medium Low heat to skillet add Olive Oil and let heat up to almost smoking, Add diced Onions and diced Garlic, saute until edges have just browned, about 1 1/2-2 minutes. Set aside about 1/4 Cup of your browned Garlic and Onions.

Pour in white wine, add Oregano, stir, add chicken breasts, top of breasts down.  White wine will be boiling or almost boiling, cook uncovered for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, flip chicken breasts.

In your 1 quart Sauce Pan add chicken stock and about 1 Tbsp Olive Oil, your reserved Onions and Garlic, Cilantro, and Pepper to taste. Bring to boil. Add Rice, remove from heat, cover for last 5 minutes.

While your Rice is resting, you should have five minutes left on the timer. Cook Chicken Two More Minutes. Remove from heat and let rest for 5-6 minutes.


While your chicken is resting, Plate your rice, then add chicken. Top the chicken with some of the Onions and Garlic from you broiling pan, garnish with Capers. You can also garnish the rice with a spric of Cilantro or Parsley, if you have it on hand.

Serve and Enjoy!

Watch Your Drink,
