How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and coriander; sauté 1 minute. Stir in rice and 1/4 teaspoon salt; sauté 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in parsley and lemon juice.
Sprinkle chicken with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side. Place chicken on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes or until done. Return skillet to medium-high heat.
