  • 6 large chicken thighs bone-in
  • 4 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp black Pepper
  • ½ tsp ground thyme
  • ½ tsp sage
  • ½ cup peas
  1. In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add butter and brown chicken on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.

  2. Add onion and seasoning, stirring until onions are translucent. Add broth, peas, and chicken back into the pan. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Then remove chicken one more time, stir in rice, and place chicken back on top of the rice, spaced out as much as possible.

  3. Cover pan and cook another 15-20 minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 F and the rice has absorbed all of the water. Top with Parmesan and serve.
