Ingredients

Lemon Chicken

  • 1 lemon, juice and zest.
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano.
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme.
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season.
  • 500 g chicken thighs (about 4 large).
  • 1 lemon, cut into slices (optional).

Rice

  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped.
  • 1 cup Basmati rice.
  • 1 cup chicken stock.
  • 1 1/2 cup water.
  • 1 bunch parsley, leaves and stems finely chopped.
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season.
  • 100 g green beans, ends trimmed and chopped into 2cm pieces (roughly 1 cup chopped).

Directions

1. Mix all ingredients for the marinade together in a small bowl. Coat chicken and allow to marinade for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 180ºC / 350ºF / Gas Mark 4.

3. Add onion, rice, water, stock, parsley stems and half of the parsley leaves, salt and pepper to a deep baking dish. Stir to combine. Cover with foil and place in the oven. Cook for 30 minutes until most of the water has absorbed from the rice.

5. Turn the oven up to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6 and place dish back into the oven uncovered for 15 -20 minutes until chicken has cooked through.
