Solo Lemon Chicken Breast and Rice RECIPE

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.

This is one of the 'Solo' series recipes provided by Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota.


1 ( 5 to 6 ounce) bone less, skinless chicken breast
1 lemon
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon basil
1/3 cup un-cooked rice
2/3 cup white wine or vermouth

  • Preheat oven 375° F
  • Put 1 tablespoon butter into an oven proof dish stir in the rice until all the grains are coated.
  • Add the wine.
  • Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice from half the lemon into a dish with the remaining melted butter and the basil. Other herbs such as dill, or oregano could be used instead. Cooking is a Creative Sport !!!
  • Coat the chicken breast with the butter / lemon / herb sauce on both sides and place on top of the rice and wine.
  • Slice the remaining half of the lemon into thin rounds and place on top of the chicken.
  • Cover with a tight fitting cover or foil and bake for 45 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed and the chicken is completely cooked through.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve with a lettuce salad or a green vegetable with the extra butter sauce.
