Most Amazing One Pot Greek Chicken & Lemon Rice

IngredientsCHICKEN AND MARINADE

  • 5 chicken thighs skin on bone in (about 1 kg / 2 lb)(Note 1)
  • 1 – 2 lemons use the zest + 4 tbsp lemon juice (Note 7)
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt

RICE

  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil separated
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 cup / 180g long grain rice (Note 6 for other rice)
  • 1 1/2 cups / 375 ml chicken broth / stock
  • 3/4 cup / 185ml water
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • Black pepper

GARNISH

  • Finely chopped parsley or oregano (optional)
  • Fresh lemon zest (highly recommended)

Instructions

  1. Combine the Chicken and Marinade ingredients in a ziplock bag and set aside for at least 20 minutes but preferably overnight.

TO COOK

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade but reserve the Marinade.
  3. Heat 1/2 tbsp olive oil in a deep heavy based skillet (Note 2) over medium high heat.
  4. Place the chicken in the skillet skin side down and cook until golden brown then turn and cook the other side until golden brown. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  5. Pour off fat and wipe the pan with a scrunched up ball of paper towel (to remove black bits) then return to the stove.
  6. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in the skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and sauté for a few minutes until translucent. Then add the remaining Rice ingredients and reserved Marinade.
  7. Let the liquid come to a simmer and let it simmer for 30 seconds. Place the chicken on top then place a lid on the skillet (Note 3). Bake in the oven for 35 minutes. Then remove the lid and bake for a further 10 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender (so 45 minutes in total).
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving garnished with parsley or oregano and fresh lemon zest if desired.
