IMG_3080

There are so many variations of cooking a chicken breasts on the stove! Every time I need to cook a tasty dinner and I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, I follow this quick and easy chicken breast recipe.

What I like about cooking a chicken breasts, is that it never takes a long time to prepare them.  In this simple, but a  delicious dish, I combine a fresh chicken breasts with quite a large amount of white onions and green olives. Adding the ingredients one by one while cooking a chicken breasts slowly, allowes the chicken to absorp the different tastes gradually. A taste of fresh lemon adds a special refreshing touch to your dish finally.

What makes a chicken breasts tasting special following this recipe,  is using a little saffron, which adds a significant colour to the chicken also.

There is no need to make an additional side dish to serve your chicken breasts with olives and lemon. I’ve tried to serve a simple cooked brown rice. It was a great combination! Also the brown rice is a very healthy side dish, rich in minerals and vitamins.

For the best result, it is good to soak the brown rice in the cold water for half an hour before you start to cook. Soaking in the water helps the rice to soften better.

Follow the simple steps to cook the brown rice:

  1. Soak the brown rice in the cold water for an hour and half.
  2. In the pot heat 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Rinse the brown rice in water.
  4. Add 1 cup of brown rice to the pot.
  5. Cover the brown rice with 2 and 1/2 cups cold water.
  6. Season with a little sea salt.
  7. Wait until it starts to boil.
  8. Lower the heat.
  9. Cook 30 minutes over a very low heat.
  10. Serve and enjoy.
