Steamed Vegetables with Chicken and Rice

Mixed Steamed Vegetables Chicken and Rice

A light and mild dish, certainly healthy with delicious vegetables.
The juicy and tender meat is delicately flavored with gyros spice mix.
This is a quick dinner, perfect for the weekday and for busy people!
Usually when I make mixed vegetables with rice, I make one huge batch and freeze leftovers.


1. ~6-7 Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs
2. 3 Cups of White Rice
3. 2 Packages of Mixed Vegetables (Carrots, Green Beans, Corn, etc.)
4. 1 Package of Broccoli Florets
5. 2 tsp. Gyros Spice Mix
6. 1 tsp. Paprika
7. Salt
8. Pepper
9.  2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
10. 6 Cups of Water


1. Prepare meat. Cut chicken thighs into bite-sized cubes. Add to bowl.
2. Add 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil, 1.5 tsp. of gyros spice mix, and 1 tsp. of paprika to the meat. Mix.
3. Add salt and pepper to the chicken according to your taste.
4. Set the meat in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
5. After 1 hour, boil 6 cups of salted water. When water boils, add 3 cups of white rice.
6. Cook rice on low until water is absorbed (no more than 20 minutes).
7. In the meantime, cook meat on non-stick pan without adding anymore oil.
8. Steam all vegetables together and add salt and pepper to taste to the vegetables.
9. When vegetables are cooked to desired tenderness, mix with cooked chicken and rice.
10. Taste, and add some more gyros spice mix if you wish to have more flavor.
11. Add salt/pepper as needed. Serve with favorite salad.
