Stupidly Easy Chicken Recipe

by BeckyBecky

So I got back late (I’m basically always late) and had about 20 minutes to cook dinner and eat it.

I also only had chicken. Didn’t have any quick sauces or stick-in-the-oven jobs.


So I decided to make my stupidly easy chicken. It has the added benefit of being ridiculously delicious. It’s not terribly good for you (OMG butter), but when you’re in a rush who has time for healthy?

Serves 2.

  • Chicken (2 breasts)
  • Olive oil (1tbsp)
  • Butter (25g)
  • Garlic (2tbsp, minced, I use Very Lazy Garlic)
  • Soy sauce (2tbsp)
  • Rice (200g)
  • Peas (however much you like, really)


  1. Chop the chicken into chunks or strips.
  2. Stick the rice on to boil.
  3. Heat the oil in the pan, then add the butter and melt (I find this helps to stop the butter from burning as easily). The pan shouldn’t be too hot.
  4. Add the garlic and soy sauce to the pan. Fry for a couple of minutes then up the heat so it’s sizzling.
  5. Add the chicken to the pan.
  6. Cook for 5-10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, then a few minutes longer to reduce the sauce a little.
  7. When the rice is a couple of minutes from being done, add the peas to the same saucepan.
  8. When the rice is cooked, dish it up.
  9. Next serve up the chicken and drizzle the sauce over the top. Serve and eat quickly (if you’re in a rush!).
