Chicken with rice and veggies

Today's dinner adventure was chicken with rice and veggies in the GoSun.

Here are the ingredients:

About 8 to 10 oz. chicken, cubes or strips

1 cup assorted chopped veggies such as tomatoes, onions, peppers, mushrooms, carrots, peas, and asparagus.

Olive oil to marinate chicken.

Salt, pepper, garlic, spices.

1/2 cup of rice.


Marinate chicken cubes or strips in olive oil with salt, pepper, spices, and sliced clove of garlic.

Chop veggies.

Oil GoSun tray. Sprinkle bottom with rice. Lay chicken on top, intersperse with veggies. Add salt and pepper as desired. Insert tray in GoSun and cook. It will take about an hour, give or take 10 or 15 minutes.

I didn't start cooking until 5:30 and was worried that I would run out of sun. Forty-five minutes later the rice wasn't cooked yet. At about one hour some light cloud rolled in. Things started smelling delicious about that time. I let it go about an hour and 20 minutes, and I think that was a bit too long.


It was a bit dry and the rice was crunchy and caramelized in places. The next time I would try deboned chicken thighs because they are moister. I also used veggies like carrots and asparagus that don't release much liquid. I should have probably used more tomatoes and peppers. I might also add a bit of broth to the rice, maybe a quarter cup or so, before inserting the tray in the tube. BTW this quantity easily served two.
