    About this dish

    A tangy fresh lemon dressing does double duty as a marinade for the chicken and a flavorful stir-in for the rice.


    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 4 4 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 package UNCLE BEN’S® READY RICE® Original Long Grain
    • ¼ teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, divided


    1. Prepare grill.
    2. Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, pepper and garlic in a large bowl.
    3. Transfer 5 tablespoons of the lemon mixture into a large zip-top plastic bag; set aside remaining lemon mixture in bowl. Add chicken breasts to bag, seal, and shake to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.
    4. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade. Lightly spray chicken with cooking spray and sprinkle on both sides with remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt.
    5. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Remove from heat and keep warm.
    6. Prepare rice according to package directions. Add rice to remaining lemon mixture in bowl. Add lemon zest and 2 teaspoons parsley; stir well to combine. Serve chicken with rice; top with remaining parsley.
