  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2/3 cups prepared lemonade
  • 1 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 cup long grain white rice uncooked
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • Juice from half of a medium sized lemon
  • 1-12 oz package Green Giant Steamer Broccoli Florets cooked and roughly chopped
  • 4 green onions sliced


  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Slice chicken into 1 inch cubes and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add to olive oil and cook for a couple of minutes, just until browned and NOT cooked through.
  • Add garlic and stir for about 30 seconds. Garlic burns very quickly so take care with this step.
  • Push chicken aside and add uncooked rice to the pan. Saute (stir and cook) for a couple of minute until rice begins to brown. Careful not to let it burn.
  • Stir in chicken broth, lemonade, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add cooked broccoli and sliced green onions. Divide into bowls, and enjoy!


If you prefer your rice a little more moist, reduce the amount of rice by 1/8 cup.
