Parmesan Chicken and Lemon Rice

Winters are long, seemingly never ending in New Hampshire.  One of the best ways I know to combat the blahs that accompany sometimes terrible weather is to make dishes filled with sunny, cheerful citrus.  I'll whip up a batch of my Gram's Lemon Cupcakes, or make some Orange Ricotta Pancakes.

Since I've been on a big rice kick, I went searching for a recipe that utilized citrus.  I found this lemon rice, and I was happy to look the chicken recipe over and see that it was also one my family would love.  I like thin cutlets rather than pounding out regular ones. For the onion, I had Bermudas on hand, and I did not add the cheese to the rice.


Not only was this great that day, but it reheated well also.  I can't wait to make it again using fresh spring peas rather than frozen.  If you're not a fan of English peas, you could also use sugar snaps or even asparagus tips.   Thanks so much to Colleen D for sharing her recipe!

Parmesan Chicken and Lemon Rice

Author:

ingredients:

  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3/4 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup frozen peas (about 4 ounces), thawed
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • Freshly ground pepper, optional

instructions:

  1. In a saucepan, bring broth and lemon juice to a boil. Stir in rice and onion; return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until liquid is almost absorbed and rice is tender, 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and milk. In another bowl, toss bread crumbs with 1/3 cup cheese and oregano. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Dip in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture to coat both sides.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook chicken until golden brown and chicken is no longer pink, 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. When rice is cooked, gently stir in peas; cook, covered, until heated through, 1-2 minutes. Stir in lemon zest and remaining cheese. Cut chicken into slices; serve with rice. If desired, sprinkle with pepper.

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
