Crispy Chicken Thighs & Rice

5 Servings
1 Hours 10 Minutes

I love this recipe because the rice soaks up all the flavors from the chicken while cooking. The result is truly amazing!

This dish only requires one deep cast iron or ceramic pan which makes it so convenient. It is also full of protein and fiber!

These chicken thighs are so juicy, full of flavor, with the crispiest skin. I paired it with a crunchy lime vinaigrette salad but any salad or veggie would do.

There are so many variations of chicken and rice but this is one of my all time favorites. It is perfect for meal prepping, lunch, or dinner because you can make 5 servings at once!
