  • 3 pounds chicken parts
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cups long-grain white rice
  • 6 cups chicken stock


  1. In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat and add chicken. Brown on all sides then remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Add onion and tomato and sauté until onion turns translucent. Stir in oregano and lemon juice.
  3. Add rice and stir well to combine and coat all grains of rice.
  4. Add chicken stock, stir and return chicken to pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until all surface liquid has been absorbed.
