Chicken with Rice, Broccoli, and Scallions

To make this on the stovetop, cover the pot after bringing the liquid to a boil and keep the mixture at a steady simmer over medium-low, 25 to 30 minutes. Try another variation of this go-to dinner: Spiced Yellow Rice with Chicken and Vegetables, Chicken and Rice with Corn and Sun-Dried Tomatoes, or Moroccan Chicken and Rice with Chickpeas.

Chicken with Rice, Broccoli, and Scallions

Source: Everyday Food, December 2010


  • 1 whole chicken (3 to 4 pounds), cut into 10 pieces
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced medium
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, diced medium
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 3 cups broccoli florets (from 2 stalks)
  • 6 scallions (white and light green parts only), thinly sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth or water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with rack in lower third. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over high. Cook chicken, skin side down, until golden and crisp, 6 minutes. Flip chicken and cook until browned, 6 minutes. Transfer to a large plate.

  2. Reduce heat to medium and add onion, garlic, and celery to pot. Cook, stirring and scraping up browned bits with a wooden spoon, until onion is translucent, 4 minutes. Stir in mustard, thyme, red-pepper flakes, and rice and cook 1 minute.

  3. Add broccoli, scallions, and broth and season with salt and pepper. Arrange chicken, skin side up, on top of rice mixture. Bring to a boil, cover pot, and place in oven. Bake until chicken is cooked through and liquid is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note

Use a whole chicken for this one-pot meal, or buy a package of precut thighs or breasts.

    This is just OK, the flavor can be amped-up so I would recommend doubling the spices and adding the broccoli halfway through the cooking time. I followed the recipe to the letter and the broccoli was so overcooked...yuck!
