This recipe is suuuuper easy and suuuper yummy. I think I've already made it like 5 times and I'm not going to stop. I can't believe how flavorful it is and how much it doesn't taste like lemon. Honestly the flavors just beautifully combine and come out so delicious. 

4 chicken thighs
1 cup rice
2 cups water
1 Jalapeño, diced
1 shallot (or half an onion), diced

Seasoning (to your liking):
Chicken Bullion
Lemon Pepper (I used Lawry's)

Finish with:
Lemon juice

  1. Put a skillet to heat with some oil. 
  2. Massage your chicken thighs with chicken bullion and lemon pepper to however much your heart desires on both sides. 
  3. Sear the chicken on the pan - skin side down first - until you get a beautiful caramelized coating. Remember to flip sides. 
  4. Take out the chicken and to the same pan, 3add in your diced jalapeño and diced onion to the skillet. Let that cook for a few minutes until softened. 
  5. Add in your washed rice and season with chicken bullion and lemon pepper to your liking. Mix. 
  6. Add in 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil.
  7. Add the chicken thighs back in and turn down to a simmer. Cover for about 15 minutes. Do not touch them for the whole 15 minutes. 
  8. Finish it off with lemon juice and cilantro. 
There you have it! This recipe is amazing and I will forever and ever cook it! I hope you do too!
