Chicken and Rice is one of the world's great one?pot dishes. Don't be intimidated by cooking chicken and rice in the same pan; it's no harder than cooking either ingredient on its own. You may need to monitor the moisture in the pan toward the end of cooking, but as long as you resist the urge to uncover the skillet and stir, it will come out great.
