I have to start out by saying that this recipe is delicious. It is actually one of my favorite meals because the mix of cilantro lime rice and sauteed vegetables is amazing. My Chicken and Vegetables with Cilantro Lime Rice is an easy and delicious meal to prepare for your family. 

The amazing blend of chicken and vegetables topped on a bed of cilantro lime infused rice.

I am not sure if my favorite part of this recipe is the sauteed vegetables or the amazing flavor of the cilantro rice. 

  • Cook 2 cups of rice according to package directions
  • Squeeze the juice of 1 medium-size lime into the rice
  • Add 1 teaspoon of oil to the rice
  • Add a bushel (or less) of chopped cilantro to the rice
  • Stir all together

One thing that I love about Chicken and Vegetables with Cilantro Lime Rice is that you can add any vegetables that you like. For this recipe, I used my favorite vegetables but before you prepare the vegetables you will need to cook 2 chicken breasts cubed. I cooked the chicken on the stovetop, but if you choose you can grill it or use your instant pot.  

  • Once you decide on what vegetables you want to include, dice them and slice them
  • Melt/Heat 1-2 tablespoons of oil or butter in a saucepan
  • Add vegetables and 1-2 diced garlic cloves
  • Sautee
  • Squeeze 1 lime onto vegetables and stir
  • Serve on a bed of cilantro lime rice and enjoy
