Simple Lemon Chicken With Lemon Herb Rice

When life gives you lemons, make lemon chicken with lemon + herb rice, right? It’s simple to make, and so delicious! I’ve had college students ask about meals that are easy to pack for lunch – this recipe is a perfect example!  When I made this recipe, I made two chicken breasts and had one for dinner, packing the other for lunch the next day. The chicken and rice in the image below are layered in a food storage bowl that can be stored in the refrigerator and tossed in a lunch bag the next day. I added in a lemon slice to add a splash of citrus so that it’s as light and fresh even after reheating.


  • 1-2 chicken breasts
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • 1 T olive juice
  • ½ tsp minced garlic (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 c instant rice
  • 1 c water
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • 2 T Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
