How to make Chicken with Garlic Parmesan Rice

Step 1: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.

Step 2: With salt, pepper, and garlic powder, season the chicken. Saute the chicken tenders to the hot oil until brown and just cooked through. Set the chicken tenders aside.

Step 3: Into the same skillet, add the butter, garlic, pepper flakes, and half a tsp salt. Saute for a few minutes over medium heat.

Step 4: Adjust the heat to medium-high, then pour in the white wine. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring. Set at least 3 tbsp of pan sauce for later use.

Step 5: To the skillet, add the uncooked rice and the remaining butter sauce. Stir well to completely cover the rice with the sauce. Pour in the chicken broth and season with the rest of the half a tsp salt. Bring the mixture to a low boil. When boiling, adjust the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and let it simmer for about 20 minutes or until the rice is tender, stirring a few times.

Step 6: Over the rice, sprinkle the Parmesan, then arrange the chicken tenders on top. Cover the pan again, take away from heat, and sit for about 5 minutes.

Step 7: Over the chicken tenders, drizzle the reserved 2 tbsp pan sauce and garnish with parsley.

Step 8: Serve and enjoy!
