  • 2 chicken thighs
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 garlic cloves finely sliced
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 spring onion
  • frozen peas
  • 2 slices of butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 cup Parboiled rice (dry)
  • 2 cups water
  • salt
  • pepper
  • seasoning for chicken
  • thyme
  • a pinch of saffron


  • Cut the onion into marigolds.
  • Place the washed thighs on top of the onion and garlic in the baking dish.
  • Season and place a slice of butter on top. Cover with a little water and place in an oven preheated to 200 °C for 20 minutes. Bake covered.
  • Meanwhile, fry the rice in the oil until golden. Add all the chopped vegetables, season and cover with water.
  • Remove the thighs from the baking dish and pour in the rice and vegetables.
  • Place the thighs on top and bake, covered, for approximately another 25-30 minutes until the rice and meat are tender. The water will soak into the rice and combine the flavours of the meat and rice.
