How to make Chicken with Garlic Parmesan Rice
Step 1: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. In the meantime, season the chicken tenders with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place the chicken tenders in the hot oil and cook until browned and just cooked through. Set aside when done.
Step 2: In the same skillet, place the butter, garlic, pepper flakes, and half tsp salt. Saute for a few minutes over medium heat until the garlic is fragrant.
Step 3: Adjust the heat to medium-high, then pour in the white wine. Stir and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Set aside, saving 3 tbsp of the pan sauces for later.
Step 4: To the skillet with the rest of the butter sauce, stir in the uncooked rice. Pour in the chicken broth and add the rest of the half tsp salt. Bring everything to a low boil. Then, adjust the heat to medium-low. Put the lid on and let the mixture simmer for about 20 minutes or until the rice is tender, stirring a few times as it cooks.
Step 5: Over the rice, sprinkle the Parmesan and arrange the chicken tenders on top. Replace the lid and take the skillet off the heat. Let this sit for about 5 minutes.
Step 6: Over the chicken tenders, drizzle the saved 3 tbsp pan sauce and garnish with some parsley. Serve right away. Enjoy!
