I've got a vauge idea of cooking chicken (boned thighs) with peppers and rice, possibly in a white wine sauce ... but have no idea if it would work!

Was sort of thinking of cooking the rice; frying the chicken in a little oil, adding the peppers and then combining it all ... sounds bland tho ...?

Any help would be very gratefully received smile

Thanks <<phew>>

Would mixed Italian herbs work?
Bit of a pleb - only have basic herbs; all dried ones...

I could cook the rice in stock - would that help do you think?

I think I would do the rice separately -

fry chicken pieces to brown
fry onions, add herbs, peppers and white wine, add chicken, seasoning maybe a bit of stock powder, cook through with lid on.
Then do rice and spoon the chicken and sauce stuff on top.

Or you could do the same but add a tin of tomatoes to the chicken (maybe with red wine), and cook it in the oven in a casserole for an hour or so - then serve on the rice. that would be nice.

Do you have onions? That will add flavour too. Mixed herbs should be fine.

Ooh or garlic...I've done that before. Brown thighs in a pan with garlic and peppers then add glass of wine and seasoning. Sometimes I leave it like that, othertimes add in a can of tomatoes.

Ooh - both sound good!

Think I'll do muffle's first suggestion for tonight but keep the other in mind for future reference.

Thank you so much everyone smile
