Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Rub the chicken pieces with 1 tablespoon olive oil; sprinkle with 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper.

Step 2

Spread the ready-to-serve rice in an even layer in a heavy-duty aluminum foil-lined sheet pan, breaking up the clumps.

Step 3

Cut the broccoli into florets. If using the stems, peel the outer skin off so the stalks will get tender and cut into chunks about the size of florets. Toss together the broccoli, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl; spread in an even layer over the rice.

Step 4

Toss together the mushrooms and the remaining olive oil, salt, and pepper, and spread over the broccoli and rice.

Step 5

Place the chicken pieces, skin side up, 1 1/2 inches apparat on the broccoli and mushrooms.

Step 6

Bake at 425 degrees for about 1 hour or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of the chicken registers 170 degrees. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

I just love recipes like this! The protein, veggie, and starch all cooked together. I also love popping a meal into the oven and forgetting about it until the timer goes off. This recipe checked all of those boxes - plus it was delicious! The chicken was cooked perfectly and I loved the rice and broccoli. Thank you!
