What's For Dinner: Dairy Free Soy Free Chicken Carrot Pilaf

UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.

This is a recipe I got out of my Simple & Delicious Taste Of Home Cookbook (page 38).

Chicken Carrot Pilaf


*I decided at the last minute to switch the zucchini & squash I laid out for broccoli. So the broccoli is not pictured.

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup uncooked rice (I used Uncle Ben's Brown)
1 cup cut carrots (I used frozen)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup broccoli (I used frozen)
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
3 cups chicken broth (I used Progresso, check yours for soy)


In a large skillet, brown chicken in coconut oil until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet add the rice and brown for a few minutes. Then add the carrots, onion, broccoli, and bell peppers. Cook and stir until rice is browned and onion is tender.

Stir in broth. Place chicken over rice mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

I ended up changing a lot from the original recipe. Here is the original if you want to compare: Chicken Carrot Pilaf
