Nightshade Free Chicken and Rice Recipe

This is one of my favorite stomach filling meals to make. Whenever I am stuck for a lunch idea or I have very little in the pantry, I create this either the night before or in the morning before heading off to work. You can make big portions to get a few meals out of it.

Total time

Serves: 4
  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium spanish onion – chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds boneless or bone-in chicken darkmeat
  • 1 cup brown/wild/wholegrain rice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 2 cups gluten free / dairy free stock
  • 1 pinch saffron strands
  • 1 cup of peas


  1. Saute garlic and onions in olive oil over moderate heat until beginning to brown. Remove from the pan.
  2. Saute the chicken until brown on both sides. Remove from the pan as well.
  3. Add the rice, garlic, onions and spices (cumin, turmeric, oregano) to the now empty pot. Stir to coat (about 2 minutes).
  4. Add the stock & Bring to a boil.
  5. Turn down to simmer and cover. Remove 2 tbs of liquid and cover the saffron strands.
  6. Allow to steep for 2 minutes then add liquid back to pot.
  7. Add chicken on top but press down into the ingredients underneath (so the chicken is mostly/entirely submerged).
  8. Simmer for about 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
  9. Add the thawed peas at the 20 minute mark
  10. When done, raise the heat to high for roughly three minutes. You want the rice on the bottom of the pot to get nice and crunch brown.
