How to make the best chicken with veggies recipe?
My recipe for fantastic chicken with veggies and rice includes red bell peppers, corn, peas and mushrooms. It is roughly very similar to the mixture, which I used in this meat-stuffed potato pancake. This recipe is enriched with ginger, among other things.
For meat, you can choose between chicken thighs or chicken breasts. Delicate chicken breasts go well with this recipe. Simply dry the chicken with a paper towel. There is no need to wash them with water. After that, cut them into smaller cubes.
It is important to prepare everything first because later on, you will just “throw” the ingredients into the pan.
Which side dish goes best with chicken with veggies?
The most popular is probably the version with rice.
But you don’t have to serve the chicken with veggies with rice alone. Spatzle is also a good choice. They may not be well known, but they taste absolutely amazing. Spatzle is a type of German pasta made with fresh eggs and flour, typically serving as a side for saucy dishes.
If this is not your first time on my blog, you may have tried it in a German or Austrian style goulash recipe.
A few tips on simple chicken with veggies and rice:
- You can also add turmeric to the rice pot. Turmeric is healthy and will give your rice a beautiful color.
- You can use the peas frozen or canned. Nevertheless, frozen peas work perfectly here.
- Don’t be afraid to add more water. This will help to create excellent consistency. If your chicken with veggies is still too watery, mix one teaspoon of cornstarch with a little water and add to the pan.
