One-Pot Lemon Pepper Chicken & Rice


Here’s what you need:
Yield: 4 servings with rice leftovers

Ingredients:
3 Tbsp. Lemon Pepper
1 Tbsp. Paprika
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 lbs Chicken Thighs With Skin
4Tbsp. Butter
1 Yellow Onion, diced
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup Arborio Rice
1/4 cup White Wine
4 cups Chicken Broth
1 1/2 cup Milk
Pepper to taste
1 cup Parmesan
1/4 cup Parsley (Optional)

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 350˚F/ 175˚C.

Combine lemon pepper, paprika and garlic in a small bowl. In a large oven proof pot, heat olive oil on medium heat. Season both sides of the chicken and place in the pot skin side down. Cook for 3 minutes, turn the heat up to medium high and cook for an additional 2 minutes (or until browned). Turn the chicken over and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Remove chicken from the pot and set aside. (Don’t worry! It will finish cooking when you put it in the oven.)

With a paper towel, carefully wipe out excess fat, leaving the seasoning. On medium high, melt 2 Tbsp. of butter in the pot and add the diced onions and minced garlic. Cook until onions are translucent (1- 2 minutes). Add the rice and stir until it becomes translucent (1- 2 minutes). Pour in the white wine and let it cook until most of the wine has evaporated (about 2 minutes). Add the chicken broth, 1 cup of milk, and a dash of pepper and stir. Bring it to a simmer. Place the chicken back into the pot. Cover with a lid or foil and bake for 30 minutes (remove lid after 20 minutes).

Remove the chicken from the pot and broil on high for 2-3 minutes or until the skin has nicely browned. Add the other 2 Tbsp. butter, parmesan, 1/2 cup of milk and parsley to the rice. Stir until well combined. Return the chicken on top of the rice and serve.
