We all need a few simple recipes up our sleeve for those crazy week night meals when you are short on time and big on hunger. This chicken dish recipe does the job.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 dozen mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Heat the olive oil  in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken for a couple minutes on each side or until the skin is golden brown. Transfer the chicken to a paper-towel lined plate.

In the same pan, fry the onion and garlic until fragrant and translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the rice and stir to coat in the oil. Fry for another 2 minutes. Add the broth and stir well ensuring all the rice is in the liquid. Add the chicken back to the pan and top with the mushrooms. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Leave to simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the rice has absorbed the broth and the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the heat.

Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and enjoy family style while warm.
