Balsamic Chicken and Rice

Prep Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 30 mins

This recipe is a favourite introduced to me by my old roommate Vik. It was also the last thing I ever cooked for them. They didn't eat any though lmao.

The chicken part is alright, but the absolute decadence of the rice is unmatched.


Plastic BagPanPotStoveTongs



  • A few tablespoons of Flour
  • 1 carton Chicken Tenders
  • A bottle of Balsamic Vinegar
  • Fajita Spice Blend
  • Olive Oil


  • 1 part Rice
  • 1 part Chicken Broth
  • Fajita Spice Blend



  1. In a plastic bag, mix the chicken tender and flour, then shake to coat.
  2. Heat up a pan on medium high and then add olive oil and coated chicken when hot.
  3. Add the chicken to the pan and space evenly.
  4. Generously sprinkle the spice blend on the top of the chicken
  5. Leave to cook and periodically check if the chicken is browned using the tongs. Once it is, flip the tenders and sprinkle the spice blend on the other side.
  6. As above, wait for the chicken to brown, then, once it is, pour balsamic vinegar into the pan until is almost covers the chicken.
  7. Leave sauce to cook. You will know it is done when you can press the tongs into the bottom of the pan and the sauce takes a second to fill the hole.


  1. Wash the rice to get rid of the gluten.
  2. In a pot mix one part rice to one part chicen broth
  3. Stir in spice blend to taste. Don't put too much or your rice will be salty.
  4. Place the pot onto the stove at medium-high until it boils then switch to medium-low. Stir occasionally.
  5. Cook the rice until its at the desired hardness.


  1. To serve, mix the chicken and sauce into the pot of rice.
  2. It helps to put some rice in the pan so you can get all the sauce before transfering it back to the pot.

This makes for great leftovers as a whole meal and an outstanding snack as just rice.

That's why I normally make a cup or so more rice than I need. That way I have a tasty snack for later in the week.

I use Dean's Fajita Mix for my spice blend which contains Salt, Dextrose, Garlic, Pepper, Coriander, Onion, Celery, and Citric Acid.
