Directions

To begin, heat up the olive oil and 1 minced clove of garlic in a pan over a medium high heat. Add in the chicken, a pinch of salt and pepper, and the chili powder and cook each side for 7-10 minutes until it’s cooked through.

Mix together the chicken broth and the milk in a saucepan until it simmers. Once it reaches a simmer, reduce the heat to low. In a separate skillet, melt the butter with the onion for 2-3 minutes. Then, stir in the remaining garlic and rice for 1 minute before pouring a small amount of the broth mixture -- a little less than a cup.

Allow the rice to absorb the broth and milk mix before adding another small amount, and another, and another until you’re out of broth. Then, add in the peas, tomato, pepper, corn, green onion, and chicken and cook for another 5-7 minutes or until the chicken is heated through. Stir in the parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper, and then serve warm!
