Why, Why Would You Do This?

So the expression goes: “Content happened”. While I was recording a YouTube video on ChatGPT3 and how it can help the average person, I decided to enlist the help of ChatGPT3, the self-professed “state-of-the-art language generation model”, to create a recipe that someone might typically find on a cooking blog. I am always skeptical of automatically generated text from a system which doesn’t understand intent and context, but this might be a win!

ChatGPT3 came up with a very convincing recipe that looks like a decent–if simple–fusion of American and Mexican cuisine. It is worth critiquing that the Mexican Rice I grew up with didn’t typically include corn, but I’ll let it pass this time ChatGPT3!

I share this recipe with you to try. If you try it out, drop me a message on Twitter to let me know how it did!

The Recipe

The following text is the exact language that ChatGPT produced during the video recording.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, add remaining olive oil and sauté mushrooms and asparagus for 4-5 minutes, or until tender.
  3. In a separate pot, bring rice, chicken broth, onion, garlic, cumin, smoked paprika, oregano, and cayenne pepper (if using) to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 18-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked and all the liquid has been absorbed.
  4. Once the rice is cooked, stir in corn, black beans, and cilantro.
  5. Serve the chicken, mushrooms, asparagus, and Mexican rice on plates, garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.

Note: This recipe is a classic and delicious way to make a hearty meal, you can also add more spices or herbs to adjust to your taste.
