Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Ingredients

Preparation

    Set 3 cups of water to boil. Place olive oil in a large skillet that can be covered, and turn heat to medium-high. Add onions and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions soften and become translucent, 5 to 10 minutes.

    Add rice to onions; stir until each grain glistens; sprinkle with saffron, and stir. Nestle chicken in rice, add a little more salt and pepper and pour in the boiling water. Turn heat to medium-low, and cover.

    Cook 10 minutes add cooked chicken, Cook an additional 10 min or until all water is absorbed and chicken is heated through. (You can keep this warm over a very low flame for another 15 minutes; it will retain its heat for 15 minutes beyond that.)

    Garnish and serve with lemon.
