Ingredients

for 5 servings

  • 5 chicken thighs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 zucchinis, grated
  • 1 cup rice
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C).
  2. Season the chicken thighs in a bowl with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, dried basil, and dried oregano. Mix until thoroughly coated with the seasoning.
  3. On high, heat olive oil in a ovenproof pot and place chicken thighs, skin-side down, in the hot oil. Cook 3-4 minutes or until the thighs develop brown crispy skin, and flip over. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes to brown the other side, and remove from the pot.
  4. Grate both zucchinis with a box grater.
  5. Add the grated zucchini into the pot, along with rice, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
  6. Lay the chicken on top of the rice mixture and cover. Bake for 30 minutes or until the chicken’s internal temperature reads 165˚F (75˚C).
  7. Remove chicken and broil 1-2 minutes to crisp skin even more (optional).
  8. Serve chicken on bed of rice mixture.
  9. Enjoy!
