This quick fix Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice recipe could not be any easier. There’s only 4 ingredients! Plus, everything cooks in the same skillet – even the rice – so you only have to wash one dish. Super simple to throw together on a busy weeknight!



  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice (not instant)
  • 2 cups broth
  • 1 cup salsa verde


  1. Rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry. Cut into bite-sized pieces (about 1-inch cubes). Season generously with salt and pepper. In a large pot or dutch oven (something with a lid), heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. When the oil is very hot, add the chicken in a single layer and cook until the outside is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  3. Add the rice, salsa verde, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes until the rice is tender. Serve and enjoy!
