Gluten Free Lemon Chicken Sorghum Pilaf

Yields about 2 servings

4.2/5 (5 Reviews)


  • 1 Cup Nu Life Market’s White Whole Sorghum Grain
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup minced onion (medium-size)
  • 2 garlic cloves minced (medium-sized)
  • 2 ½ tbsps. olive oil, divided
  • ¼ cup green pepper
  • 1 serrano pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1tsp salt
  • 2 tbs chopped cilantro for garnish

Marinade for chicken

  • Zest of 1 lemon (1 tsp of lemon zest)
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup extra virgin oil
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 garlic cloves minced (medium-sized)
  • 1 chicken breast sliced thinly for a quick marination


Cook the sorghum grain using 2 cups of the water in a pressure cooker (@ High Pressure for 1 hour). While the sorghum is cooking, prepare the other ingredients. To prepare the marinade, combine all the ingredients except for the sliced chicken breasts. Place mixture in a zip lock and marinate chicken for at least 30 minutes. Using a medium-sized pot, start sautéing (on medium heat for about 10 minutes) the onions, garlic, green pepper, and serrano pepper in 2 tbsps. olive oil. Add the lemon pepper and salt this point. Then add cooked sorghum into the pot and cook for an additional 10 minutes on low heat. Brush a grill pan lightly with the remaining ½ tbsp. olive oil and cook marinated chicken for about 4 minutes on each side; brush occasionally chicken with marinade. Once cooked cut chicken into small strips and place over the sorghum pilaf. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
