This recipe is so easy, so flavorful and you only need one pot!IMG_1691

ingredients (serves 4)

8 small chicken pieces (with bones but no skin)

salt and freshly ground pepper

1 ripe tomato, diced

1 yellow onion, chopped

1 red pepper, sliced into long strips

1 cup  medium grain rice

2-3 cups chicken stock

1/2 t turmeric

1 T extra virgin olive oil


Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Set aside. In a large frying pan or skillet, sauté the tomato, onion and pepper in the olive oil for about 5-6 minutes. When the onion is translucent, add the pieces of chicken and cook for about 5 minutes on each side.

Add the rice to pan, stirring to coat all the grains with the oil. Add the chicken broth and the turmeric. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer uncovered until the rice is cooked – approximately 20 minutes. Add more broth if necessary.
