  • 3 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 cup sliced chestnut mushrooms
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken stock (broth)
  • 2 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  1. In a large frying pan, add the oil and place the chicken thighs skin down.

  2. Fry for 5 minutes until lightly brown, flip on the other side and fry for a further 5 minutes. The chicken will not be fuly cooked at this stage, but will cook further later on.

  3. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  4. In the same pan, add the sliced mushrooms, garlic and onions, season with salt and pepper and cook gently for a few minutes until soft and until all the liquid is evaporated.

  5. Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear, and add it to the pan together with the stock.

  6. Give a good stir, bring back the chicken to the pan, cover with a lid, and leave to cook undisturbed for 20 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed, the rice is cooked and the chicken is tender.

  7. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve hot.
