  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 diced onion
  • 6 minced cloves garlic
  • 2 diced carrots
  • 2 diced zucchini
  • 2-3 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 cup long-cooking brown rice
  • Chicken (1 whole chicken cut up with skin removed or 8-10 pieces of white and/or dark meat with skin removed. Can use bone in or boneless chicken breasts and/or thighs. I use 4 skinless and boneless breasts and 6 skinless and boneless thighs.)
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste (can use more if want it more tomatoey)
  • 2 Tablespoons light soy sauce (optional)
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in large frying pan or dutch oven over low heat.
  2. Add onion and garlic and saute for 5 minutes.
  3. Add rest of veggies and saute for an additional 5 minutes.
  4. Mix sauce ingredients together (tomato paste, soy sauce and water)
  5. Add rice to veggies, stir to mix.
  6. Place chicken pieces on top of rice and veggie mixture.
  7. Pour sauce over the chicken so it's entirely coated.
  8. Do not stir.
  9. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  10. Cover and let the chicken and rice continue to boil with the lowest possible heat.
  11. Cook for 45 minutes.
  12. Stir everything together and check if the rice is cooked enough.
  13. May need to cook for another 5-15 minutes until the rice is soft enough to your taste.

    Hi, Doris. The reason I call it Shabbat in a Pot is because that's the name of the original recipe and then I modified it. It is a wonderful, easy one-pot dinner to make for Friday night Shabbat dinner (or any other dinner) after a long day. It is not meant to be cooked overnight like cholent--I think it would mush. It may be good for a crockpot if you're looking for a long-cookiing recipe--I haven't tried it that way yet, but I will. I hope you try it and let me know how you liked it.

      Judy this looks like a great recipe. What I cannot understand is why you name it Shabbat in a pot. Can it cook overnight to serve on Shabbos lunch like a cholent?
