Chicken and Rice for Two
Chicken and rice is a comfort food classic, but it won’t comfort anyone if the rice is mushy and the chicken dry. We set out to foolproof a recipe scaled for two.
Why This Recipe Works
Browning the chicken skin not only develops flavor, but renders off some fat, guarding against a greasy dish. We par-cook the rice in the microwave to ensure that it’s tender and fluffy by the time the chicken’s cooked through. Chicken broth, onions, and garlic build deep flavor, and with wine and herbs in the mix, our chicken and rice is comforting and sophisticated.
