- 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter or extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 lb. organic boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes

- 1 cup uncooked white rice*
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
- Pinch fine sea salt, more to taste
- Pinch freshly ground pepper, more to taste
- Optional: Pinch red pepper flakes
- In a skillet heat butter or oil and garlic
- Add in onion and sauté for 2 minutes
- Add in cubed chicken breasts and sear on both sides for 1-2 minutes (it does not need to fully cook- it will later)
- Add in 1 cup uncooked white rice and mix it around for 1 minute
- Add in chicken broth, lemon juice, parsley, and spices
- Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for 30 minutes or until rice is fluffy and no broth is left

- *If you avoid rice, you can use cauliflower rice instead of regular rice. Simply don't add the chicken broth and cook for a shorter amount of time!
