One Pot Chicken And Rice

 

One Pot Chicken And Rice – chicken thighs over rice and mushrooms. Easy, tasty and nutritious, I can probably eat it every day! Well, I don’t get to make it every day, but I’m glad I did today!

I often make one pot chicken and rice or potatoes, but I usually use chicken drumsticks.

This time I had some boneless skinless chicken thighs and decided to use them instead. The result turned out fantastic! What’s not to like? Chicken, rice, mushrooms and some carrots. Extremely easy and fast to prepare. And you most likely have all the ingredients to make it at come.

Another great weeknight dinner. It is also very easy to reheat in the oven or microwave and you can store it in the fridge for up to 5 days.

I usually like to make this kind of meal in an oven safe skillet, but this time I made it in a fancier baking dish, which worked out great.

It is still winter here in Chicago, so it is the perfect time to cook some warm and hearty meals.

So I first season the chicken with some salt, pepper, parsley and paprika and cook it in a skillet on the stove top for 5 minutes per side until browned and crispy. This way I ensure that the outside is browed and the inside of the chicken can continue cooking in the oven. Then I sautee onions, carrots and mushrooms, combine them with rice and chicken stock and lay the chicken on top. Then I bake everything on 400 F for 30-40 minutes.

(Sorry guys, this is a one pot meal, just my skillet was too big and I was not going to be able to take good pictures, that’s why I transferred everything to this baking dish. But you can cook everything in a skillet).
