One Pot Caramelized Onion Chicken and Rice
1 tbsp oil
6 onions, diced
8 chicken pieces with bone
2 cups brown rice
4 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 400.
Heat oil over medium high heat in a frying pan. Add the onions and cook, stirring every 30 seconds for about 15 minutes until the onions are dark and caramelized.
Spray a large pan with nonstick spray. Add the rice to the pan. Mix in the salt, pepper and half of the onions. Pour in the water. Place the chicken on top of the rice and top with remaining onions.
Cover the pan with foil. Cook for 1 hour, then uncover and cook for another 25-30 minutes.
Note: if you have a Dutch oven or stove to oven pot, make the onions in the pot first, remove about half the onions, and then remaining instructions as above.
