One Pot Garlic & Lime Chicken

Getting experimental in the kitchen is when I am really in my element. Mixing things up with different spices and condiments brings nothing but pure excitement when recipe writing and testing. A delicious one pot meal that may indeed look a little underwhelming but the flavours are next level.

Serves 2


  • 2 chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • Zest of 1 lime plus juice when serving
  • 120g basmati rice, rinsed
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • 1 dsp white wine
  • 1 garlic bulb, whole cloves removed from shells
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Start by frying the garlic and lime zest together in the olive oil for a couple of minutes.
  2. Add the chicken, wine and season with salt and pepper; cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add the rice and pour in the stock and mix thoroughly. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes on medium-low heat. The liquid is reduced and the rice is nice and fluffy.

Best served hot
