Inclusive associated production of a light Higgs boson with one jet in pp collisions is studied in next-to-leading order quantum chromodynamics. Transverse momentum and rapidity distributions of the Higgs boson are calculated for the LHC in the large top-quark mass limit. We find that the K-factor of this process is large (~1.6). Our result supports previous suggestions that the production channel pp->gamma gamma jet gives a measurable signal for Higgs production at the LHC in the mass range 100-140 GeV.
