Ingredients

  • 1 1/2
    cups uncooked instant rice
  • 1 1/2
    cups water
  • 1
    tablespoon olive oil
  • 2
    garlic cloves, minced
  • 1
    pkg (8 oz) whole mushrooms, quartered
  • 1
    cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32 oz carton)
  • 1/2
    teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme or tarragon
  • 4
    boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1
    tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1
    tablespoon cold water
  • 1
    pkg (9 oz) frozen sugar snap peas

Steps

  • 1
    Cook rice in 1 1/2 cups water as directed on package.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic and mushrooms; cook about 4 minutes or until softened, stirring frequently. Add broth and thyme; bring to a boil.
  • 3
    Sprinkle chicken breast halves with salt and pepper; add to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook about 10 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once.
  • 4
    In small bowl, blend cornstarch with 1 tablespoon cold water until smooth. Stir into chicken mixture. Increase heat to medium-high. Add sugar snap peas; cook about 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened and peas are hot, stirring constantly. Serve chicken with sauce and vegetables over rice.

  • Fresh asparagus spears would be a good alternative to the sugar snap peas. Just cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces and add to the chicken in place of the guar snap peas.
  • One-fourth teaspoon dried thyme or tarragon can be substituted for the fresh herbs.
