Ingredients

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 1 sweet green pepper
  • 3/4 cups cubed kielbasa sausages (about 4 oz/125 g)
  • 3/4 cups cubed ham (about 4 oz/125 g)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 cups long-grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 cup sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 green onions sliced

Method

Season chicken thighs with half each of the salt and pepper. In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, about 4 minutes. Transfer to plate and set aside. Drain fat from pan.

Meanwhile, cut onion and red pepper lengthwise into 1/4-inch (5 mm) wide slices.

In same Dutch oven, fry cubed kielbasa, onion, red pepper, thyme and remaining salt and pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add rice; fry, stirring, for 1 minute to coat. Add chicken stock. Arrange chicken on rice and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until almost no liquid remains and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 15 minutes.

Stir in peas and heat through, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with sliced green onions.
