  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.

  • Sauté for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • Deglaze the pan with the juice of 1 lemon and remove from the heat.
  • In a 34 cm baking pan add the rice, the lemon peels, the bay leaves, the garlic into pieces, the rosemary, the oregano, salt, pepper, 4-5 tablespoons olive oil, the stock, the juice of the second lemon, and the chicken thighs.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes.
  • If you have a larger baking pan, roast it for 40 minutes covered with aluminum foil, then uncover the pan, and roast for 10-20 more minutes until golden.
  • Remove and serve.


If you want your rice to be less sticky and more fluffy, rinse it twice with cold water. Then, when you add it to the baking pan, mix it with the olive oil.
