Honey Dijon Chicken & Rice Pilaf


Honey Dijon Chicken & Rice Pilaf

  • 4 lbs chicken breast
  • 1 box rice pilaf
  • 2 cups green beans
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • Pinch cayenne
  • S+P
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Toss green beans with olive oil and salt and set aside. In a small bowl, mix ingredients for honey dijon and set aside. 
  2. Place content of rice pilaf into the bowl of the Ninja Food deluxe (including package instructions, water + butter). On one rack of the deluxe reversible racks, place a layer of aluminum foil and place the chicken breast on top, slightly rolling up the sides of the foil to catch any drippings. Lower the rack into the pot. Put the pressure cook lid on the Ninja Foodi and set PRESSURE HI for 5 minutes. When the pressure cook is complete, quick release the pressure and carefully remove the lid.
  3. Using the hot gloves, remove rack from the pot. Drain any excess liquid from foil and rearrange the racks, veggies loaded on lower rack and chicken on top stacking rack. Lower racks back into the pot, with the pilaf still below and close the crisping lid. Set Foodi to BROIL at 450. Cook the 10-15 minutes until the internal temp of your chicken reaches 165. At five minutes, open the lid and baste with the honey dijon. Cook another 5 minutes. Lift the lid again, turn the chicken over, baste and close the lid until the chicken has finished cooking. 
  4. Using the hot gloves, remove the racks. Build your plate of rice pilaf, green beans and honey dijon chicken!
