Honey-Rosemary Chicken and Rice Pilaf | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I am addicted to our DVR. I don’t know what I would do without it. Actually, I do know – I wouldn’t watch very much tv at all!! I rarely watch anything on tv when it is actually on anymore. That’s life with a toddler, I guess. But when I do get a few moments, I flip to the DVR and have a selection of shows waiting for me.

You all already know that I am a Rachael Ray fan. So, naturally, one of the shows on my DVR is the Rachael Ray Show. I am so far behind on watching them right now, though. That’s what happens when a show is on every day! But I do go back and watch them, and this dish came from one that I just watched that was on back in February. I added it to my menu this past week. I did like this recipe, but it wasn’t my favorite. Maybe it’s because I tend to think chicken cooked on the stove top drys out too easily. Maybe it’s because we had chicken the night before. I’m not sure. I ate it all, and it was good, just not one of those you-have-to-make-this-right-now recipes (like the one yesterday).

I’m hoping more of you will start playing along with my Saturdays With Rachael Ray, but regardless, I’m going to keep doing it because it’s helping me get through my huge list of RR recipes I want to try! Mr. Linky and the rules are below the recipe!

Honey-Rosemary Chicken
from The Rachael Ray Show

Serves 4

Total Time: about 25 minutes

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
4 6-ounce pieces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 large shallot, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 sprigs rosemary, finely chopped
1/2 cup honey
1 rounded tablespoon Dijon mustard
juice of 1 lemon

Heat 1 tablespoon EVOO, a turn of the pan, in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. When oil smokes, add chicken to the pan and cook 6 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and cover with foil.

Reduce heat under pan to medium and add another tablespoon EVOO, a turn of the pan. Add shallots, garlic and rosemary to pan and cook 2-3 minutes. Add honey, stir in Dijon and lemon juice. Add chicken back to the pan and coat on all sides with the bubbling glaze. Turn off heat.

Rice Pilaf
from The Rachael Ray Show

Serves 4

total time: about 20 minutes

3 tablespoons butter
1/4 to 1/3 cup 1-inch pieces of broken spaghetti
1 cup white rice
2 cups chicken stock

Heat a pot with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat with the lid off. Melt the butter then add broken pasta to pot and toast to deep golden. Add rice and stir, add stock and bring to a boil. Cover pot and reduce heat to low or simmer. Cook 17-18 minutes then fluff rice with fork.

Saturdays with Rachael Ray rules:

* You can link any blog post, present or past, as long as it is a Rachael Ray recipe.
* Your blog post must link back to this post, mentioning Saturdays with Rachael Ray.

That’s it!! Simple, simple. Just make sure the recipe is a Rachael Ray recipe – it doesn’t matter if it comes from her talk show, 30-Minute Meals, her magazine, or one of her cookbooks. But it must be from Rachael Ray. Any posts that don’t follow these two rules will be deleted from the Mr. Linky.

I can’t wait to see what you’ve made!

  1. California Wife says:

    Yum, I'm definitely bookmarking this to try sometime soon. We're always looking for new chicken dishes, and are huge fans of rosemary!

  2. Stew and Lindsey Campbell says:

    Just linked to your blog! I made a Rachael Ray pasta dish last night! Check it out!

    Love your blog!

    We all have our Food Network favorites! I like Ina Garten. (I cannot stand Guy Fieri and don't understand who does. Perhaps I'm too old!) Rachel I am kind of middle ground with. Some of her recipes are great, some average. I wouldn't DVR her, but I do watch her once in a while.
    The sweet/tart chicken recipe looks good, though. And I love rosemary with poultry.

  4. Joanne says:

    I watch all of my tv shows online lately – I don't even OWN a tv. I love having the convenience of watching them when i have a free minute, though.

    This looks like a good solid weeknight recipe. I guess not everything can be earth-shatteringly awesome.

  5. Judi says:

    This will be my first entry. Like Barbara, Ina Garten is my favorite on Food Network. However, I learned to cook watching Rachael Ray. Or, I should say Rachael gave me the courage to try cooking. I'm still trying!:)

  6. Gina says:

    I am addicted to DVR too and I don't have any kids! I rarely watch anything "live" anymore and when I do, I get annoyed with the commercials :)
    This looks good – I have some chicken in the fridge that I will try this with tomorrow. I am loving your RR Saturdays and hope to get in sync someday and link up my blog!

  7. Julie says:

    I'll have to try to join in your Saturday group soon. This chicken looks great!

  8. grace says:

    i have to ask–did you see the episode in which matthew mcconaughey was as high as a kite? too funny.
    great recipe–the honey would be a new and welcome addition for me!

  9. Kim says:

    I'm laughing at Grace's comment above because I did see the interview with Matthew M and thought he acted very strange!
    The honey rosemary chicken sounds great to me.

  10. Catherine says:

    It's always disappointing when a recipe you're excited about making turns out to be just so-so. For the most part, I've always liked Rachael Ray's recipes, so maybe I'll have to try another one so I can play along next weekend!

  11. teresa says:

    what a great way to make chicken! great dish!

  12. Sophie says:

    If it wasn't for the dvr, I wouldn't watch tv at all :D.

    I have a hard time cooking chicken breast on the stove top precisely because it dries out so quickly :/. I love the flavors here though, and when I'm not lazy I love to whip up some rice pilaf! YUM!

  13. kat says:

    I like the idea of the flavoring of this chicken. Maybe the trick would be to brine it a bit before cooking it so that it won't get as dry

  14. SLCFoodie says:

    This looks easy and delicious! Plus I have some rosemary in the fridge I need to use up!

    Thanks for the inspiration for dinner :) Hope you are doing well.

  15. VanderbiltWife says:

    I definitely want to play along now that I know about it! My Rachael Ray 365 cookbook and I are THISCLOSE! ;) I think I may have to get it spiral-bound because it's falling apart!

  16. The Meal Planner says:

    What did you think of her Rice Pilaf? She's been making it a lot lately as a side dish and I'm totally curious to try it.

  17. Deborah says:

    Meal Planner – I guess I should have mentioned it!! I liked it. It wasn't a "WOW!" dish, but it was a good, solid side dish.

  18. Elaine says:

    If I had a blog, I would post on your Saturdays with Rachael Ray weekly! I really like her meatball and spinach no-sagna as my most recent delish dish :)
