One of the foods I often cook is rice. My One-Pot Chicken and Rice dish is one of the easiest. It is easy to cook and just anything could be added. I used loads of peppers. Peppers are known for their abundance of vitamin C.
Peppers have Vitamin B6 and folates. Red peppers have been praised for aiding night vision. Red peppers have loads of antioxidants. To top it all, red peppers help in burning more calories.
Apart from red peppers, I used onions, chilli, mixed herbs and chicken of course. Just like I said earlier, this recipe is easily adaptable, it is what you make of it.
To make my one-pot chicken and rice dish here’s what you will need.
Rice (3 cups)
Chopped tomatoes 400g
Red Peppers 4 (chopped)
Red onions (medium size) Chopped
Mushrooms or any vegetable of your choice
Mixed Herbs (2 teaspoons)
Sunflower oil or any oil of your choice ( 4 tablespoons)
Salt to taste
Preheat your oven to gas mark 180C
To start with, chopped all the vegetables and put to a side. Saute your chopped onions in 2 tablespoons of oil until cooked.
Add half a teaspoon of mixed herbs to the onions, stir and add chicken. Making sure the chicken thighs are coated with the onions and mixed herbs, cook for 3 minutes, turning the chicken thighs to encourage even heat distribution.
Reduce the heat, take the chicken out and put to a side. In the same pot, add the rest of the oil, add your rice and a bit of water stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Add the rest of the vegetables, herbs and salt with 3 cups of water. Reduce the heat. Put the lid on and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the chicken at this stage and stir. Cook for another 2 minutes and transfer the content to an oven dish and cover with lids or tin foil.
Place the dish in the centre of the oven and cook until rice is tender and ready to eat.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes.
This dish is great for sharing. Enjoy!!!
