Honey Lemon Chicken with Rice


Honey Lemon Chicken with Rice

This Honey Lemon Chicken with Rice recipe is sweet-tart, and so tender you can cut it with a fork. The rice cooks so well, and absorbs so many flavors, you’d think you were eating risotto – without the time or stirring! Simply delicious.

  1. I am thinking of trying this Ann, but I will never have honey Bourbon and I only use long grain rice. Do you think those things would make a real difference, or it would be ok?

    • I think it would be fine without the honey bourbon, Shell. Using a long grain rice will make a difference. The medium grain ends up a lot like a risotto, and the long grain will not. A long grain rice will end up more like a pilaf. If that is ok with you, the rice shouldn’t take too much different, and the chicken will not either.

  2. That combination is right down my alley :)… Oh and I think I have all these ingredients with the exception of the Honey Flavored Bourbon, but I think it may be fine without it.
    Thanks and have a lovely rest of the week.

  3. Yunmy! This sounds great. Too bad my daughter is allergic to lemon.
