One-Pot Creamy Garlic Chicken and Rice

As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

This chicken and rice dish is creamy and packed with garlic flavor. I love the little pops of bright green spinach scattered throughout!


Let’s talk about washing the dishes. And how no one ever wants to be the one to do it.

I mean, no. Dishpan hands? Not my thang. And I don’t even care that we have a dishwasher. I don’t want to load it or unload it or even think about dealing with it.

I hate dealing with a messy kitchen, you guys! And I bet most of you do, too.

So, let’s talk about getting dinner on the table with the least amount of mess possible. Let’s talk about a one-pot dinner. Life doesn’t have to revolve around dirty dishes, my friends.

Creamy Garlic Chicken

For this recipe, you’ll need some chicken, rice, lots of garlic, a little heavy cream, spinach, and some Progresso chicken broth. You’ll also want salt, pepper, garlic powder and a little olive oil.


Creamy Garlic Chicken

Add the olive oil to a skillet and toss in some chicken seasoned with a bit of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook it until it’s browned on the outside. (Brown = flavor!) Toss in a few minced cloves of garlic.

And the chicken broth!

You’ll want to bring this a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cover it and let it cook for about 20 minutes. The rice will get all tender and creamy and dinner will start smelling divine.

Toss the baby spinach right on top and then cover the pan again. It just takes a few minutes for the heat in the pan to wilt the spinach.

Stir in the heavy cream and dinner is served!
