Ingredients for the chicken:
5 Chicken Thighs
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp turmeric
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp Natural CBD Olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Ingredients for the rice:
2 tbsp Natural CBD olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1 ½ cups basmati rice
1 ½ cup chicken broth
1 cup water
1 tbsp turmeric
Handful of raisins
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
Combine the chicken and all ingredients for the chicken in a bowl, leave to marinade for 30 minutes whilst we prep the other ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large oven safe skillet, heat 1 tbsp of Natural CBD Olive oil over medium to high heat. Place the chicken in the skillet skin side down and cook until golden brown (3-5 minutes), then flip over and cook the other side until golden.
Remove chicken and set aside.
Remove any black or burnt bits from the pan. Add a further tbsp of Natural CBD Olive oil to the pan over medium high heat.
Add onions, turmeric and cumin. Saute until onions become translucent.
Add the garlic and basmati rice and saute for 1 minute until the rice begins to turn golden.
Add the chicken broth, water and salt and bring to a simmer. Place the cooked chicken thighs directly on top of the rice and liquid. Once the liquid begins to simmer, cover with lid and transfer to the oven to continue cooking.
Bake for 30 minutes. Then, after 30 minutes, remove the lid and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Remove from the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with grilled lemon slices.
Serve hot or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
