Have decided to also post up some of my chicken experiments, since every good geek needs to stay well feed.
Ingredients (as I used them):
4 thigh pieces (with bone still in) you can use any other cut really.
2 cups of rice
bacon rashers, enough for each piece of chicken
green tomato relish (any other can be used)
shredded cheese (mine was a Melting Mix)
3 cups of chicken stock
1 whole lemon
assorted herbs & spices.
Pre-heat oven to 180 C (I set mine to 160 due to it being a prick).
Wash rice & set aside to dry.
Cut the bone from the chicken and trim the fat, set aside the bones for later use.
flatten each piece of chicken & put in your stuffing. Roll tightly & then wrap in bacon rashes, secure with toothpicks or skews.
Pan toast the rice until a little crispy. Put into casserole dish or roasting pan with lemon wedges. Lightly fry chicken bones & add to rice (done for flavouring). Add the stock to the rice
Pan sear bacon wrapped chicken for a few minutes & add to the rice stock. Cover with tinfoil & put into oven for an hour.
Check to see if rice has cooked through & not burnt to dish.
Remove from oven & leave covered for 10 minutes so rice can steam & meat relax.
Before serving, remove bones & squish lemons so juice runs out. Mix in any cheese that dripped out of the chicken.
Serve & enjoy.
