I made this for lunch a couple days ago.  It had lots of flavor and I already had everything in the house to make it!

 

Lemon-Broccoli Chicken and Rice Bowl

Serves 4

 

1 cup rice, cooked according to package directions

2 cups broccoli florets

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder

1 1/2 teaspoons lemon pepper

1 cup diced onion

2 garlic clove, minced

1 lemon, zested and juiced about (4 tablespoons juice and 1 tablespoon zest)

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

 

Place broccoli into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 4-5 minutes

Drain and season broccoli with salt and pepper

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken to hot oil, season with garlic powder, onion powder and lemon pepper

Sauté chicken and onion until chicken is completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes

Spoon garlic and rice into the skillet; cook until lightly browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes

Stir broccoli into the rice mixture; sprinkle lemon zest and lemon juice over the mixture and stir

Top with Parmesan cheese
