Lemony Brown Basmati
Rice & Chicken
Turn this into a vegetarian entrée by substituting
canned chickpeas (rinsed and drained) for
the chicken.
Makes 2 entrée servings
8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
cooking spray
1-1/2 teaspoons basil, divided
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup (Rice Cooker) brown basmati rice,
rinsed and drained
2 teaspoons finely chopped lemon zest,
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1-3/4 cups (standard liquid measure) water (or
half water, half chicken stock)
2/3 cup halved grape tomatoes
lemon wedges
Cut chicken into “finger” sized strips, about 1/2 inch
thick and 3 inches long. Toss with olive oil and half
the basil. Lightly coat the steaming tray with
cooking spray. Arrange the chicken in the steaming
tray in a single layer; reserve.
Place Rice Cooking Bowl in Cuisinart
Rice Cooker;
add butter. Cover and turn on; let heat for 30 – 40
seconds. Stir in shallot, and garlic; cover and cook
30 seconds. Add rinsed and drained rice, 1 tea-
spoon lemon zest, salt, and remaining basil. Stir to
coat. Add water. Cover and cook for 28 minutes.
Place steaming tray above rice, and cover.
Continue to cook until Rice Cooker switches
to “Warm” setting, about 10-12 minutes. Place
tomatoes on top of rice and let stand on “Warm”
for 10 minutes. To serve, stir tomatoes and steamed
chicken into rice. Arrange on warmed plates,
sprinkle with remaining lemon zest and serve with
a wedge of lemon.
*You may use sea scallops in place of the chicken.
Remove the tough muscle from the side of each
scallop and toss scallops in olive oil. Shorten their
cooking time slightly – do not add the scallops to
the steamer until rice has cooked for 32 minutes.
