Southern-Style Stewed Chicken and Rice
Sometimes the best thing you can do in the kitchen is not overthink things.
Why This Recipe Works
This comforting dish features rice plumped with little more than stock and tossed with tender pieces of shredded chicken. Simmering the chicken in store-bought chicken broth made an ultrasavory base in which to cook the rice. We used bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs for their rich flavor and because they would not dry out during the long stewing process. Butter and a chopped onion proved to be the only worthwhile additions, lending just enough savory richness.
