A simple recipe for lemon chicken with rice

We are preparing a very tasty lunch lemon chicken with rice. This dish is perfect for a holiday lunch or just an everyday dinner. Fragrant chicken combined with juicy rice and fresh lemon served with rosemary gives it a special touch


Ingredients :

4 – chicken thighs
1 – cup rice
1.5 – cups water
1- lemon
dry herbs

For the marinade, we need :

50 ml – vegetable oil
2 tbsp – mustard
2 – cloves garlic
1 tsp – salt
zest from one lemon
juice of half a lemon

Method :

Let’s start preparing the marinade. In a bowl, mix vegetable oil, mustard, chopped garlic, salt, lemon zest and juice. Mix all ingredients until a homogeneous consistency is obtained

Now put the chicken thighs in a baking dish and pour the prepared marinade onto the meat. Be sure to thoroughly dry the chicken and marinade so that every piece is infused with flavor. Leave for 15-20 minutes to marinate

While the chicken is marinating, let’s start preparing the rice. Add a glass of rice and a glass of water to the baking dish. We also add some dry herbs for flavor, for example, rosemary or any others you prefer

Cover the baking dish with rice and cooked chicken with foil and place it in the oven, preheated to 200 degrees. Bake our lemon chicken with rice for 1 hour

About 10 minutes before the end of cooking, remove the foil from the chicken pan so that the chicken gets a golden and appetizing crust. Continue baking until done

And now our delicious and aromatic lunch is ready! Remove the pan from the oven and cut the chicken into portions. Place on plates and place crumbly rice next to the chicken, which has been saturated with the aroma of lemon and herbs. Serve the dish to the table and enjoy the magnificent combination of flavors

Bon appetit
