This healthy wholesome ONE SKILLET DISH is the perfect weeknight dinner to feed your family in roughly 30 minutes!
I turned a classic: chicken and rice and spiced it up and flavored it with tea!
Tea? You ask yourself.
I am using this recipe as an entry in the Stash Tea Recipe Challenge contest!
I chose the Savory Dish category. And I used their Lemon Ginger Tea
To create this Lemon Ginger Curried Chicken and Rice!
I racked my brain on how to utilize their amazing teas in a savory dish and I think I have done it!
I used a simple rub on boneless chicken thighs (harissa, turmeric, curry powder, paprika, and S&P). Browned to perfection.
The chicken is removed from the skillet temporarily to saute the red bell pepper, garlic, and shallots.
Cooked rice (use your favorite!) is stirred in with all those drippings plus some chicken broth and 1 cup of brewed tea.
Guys, when I say the tea is the GLUE to this recipe. It truly is a MUST. It adds that light herbal taste and a subtle hint of ginger to the rice that REALLY elevates this simple chicken and rice to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
Like I want to meal prep this and take it for lunch everyday.
And if you are doing the Paleo/Keto/Whole30 thang? Swap the rice and use cauli rice or broccoli rice. I love keeping it simple in the kitchen so you can get back to the important stuff. Like being with your family, binge watching Queer Eye on Netflix, or sipping tea while finishing a GOOD BOOK.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add tea to your rice or cauli rice. You will be so pleasantly surprised!
