Dijon Baked Chicken with Rice and Broccoli

At my house, we love chicken. So, I have many recipes to cook chicken. One common theme with these recipes is Rice!!! Chicken and rice just go together!!
Last night, I marinated the chicken and today, I cooked Dijon Baked Chicken with Rice and Broccoli.

It was Delicious and EASY! If you want to try it out, here's what you will need:
2-3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon curry powder
3 tablespoons chopped onions
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup Dijon Mustard
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon Asian-style hot chili garlic sauce
1 1/2 cups basmati rice
3 cups water
5 cups frozen broccoli florets
1/8 teaspoon cavendars seasoning

You will need to marinate the chicken the night before you cook it. Place the chicken in a pan to marinate. Combine curry powder, red pepper, cavendars, honey, dijon mustard, soy sauce, and hot chili sauce in a bowl and mix. Pour evenly over the chicken and flip the chicken a few times so it's well coated. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

The next day: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and start cooking the rice according to the instructions on the bag. Cook the chicken for about 45-50 minutes and halfway through, flip it over.

While the chicken and rice are cooking, you can cook the broccoli. I like to add some cavendar's seasoning to the broccoli and steam it in a pot. However, you can also use a steamer bag in the microwave.

When everything is almost done, add a little cooking spray to a small pan and saute the onions. When the chicken is done, add the extra marinade to the onions and reduce to a glaze. Take the chicken and place it on a bed of rice. 

Add the cooked broccoli on top of the chicken, then cover it with the onion glaze.
