Simple one-pot recipes are always easy to make when you’re having a busy night or week. This one-pot chicken rice recipe by Banglar Rannaghor looks flavorful and I love the idea of letting the chicken marinate in the same pot as the rice. This helps the rice soak up all of the flavors and juices from the chicken. The chicken looks super tender and moist. I’ve never cooked rice with coconut milk before, but I love how this recipe doesn’t require a bunch of pots to wash in the end. If you’re looking for a quick dinner recipe that has carbs and protein, this is perfect for those nights to sit back, relax, and enjoy.



Chicken Marinate:

  • ½ kg boneless chicken
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt

One-Pot Preparation:

  • 1 cup hot water
  • ½ tsp garam masala

First, marinate the chicken with the seasonings listed in the ingredients list and let it marinate for 15 minutes. Then, cook the chicken until it’s brown and remove them from the pot.

I’m imagining all of the flavors that the rice has from the chicken and seasoning. I need to make this chicken rice recipe because it reminds me of curry. I haven’t had curry in so long, but this is similar to an Indian chicken curry rice dish. It has all of the seasonings from an Indian dish too.
