Use two cups of any vegetable you like. I usually make it with peas and corn for the kids, this time I used zucchini and mushrooms.
Chicken and Rice
8 pieces of chicken, I used 4 thighs and two breasts cut in two
1 Small onion, chopped
1 Clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 Cups total of vegetables (any combination of frozen peas, frozen corn, mushrooms, peppers,
1 Cup rice
1 Cup chicken stock
1 1/2 Cups canned chopped tomatoes
Heat oil in a large heavy pot. Add chicken and brown on all sides, remove and set aside. Add onions and garlic and saute for 2 minutes, if using peppers, mushrooms or zucchini add them now and saute a further 3 minutes.
Add rice, stock, tomatoes, salt, pepper and oregano. Bring to a boil.
Lower the heat, return the chicken pieces to the pot, add peas and corn, if using, cover and simmer 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
