Welcome this one-pot chicken and rice dish into your repertoire. Gooey cheese and mild chiles keep it kid friendly, with a fresh slaw dropped right on top.
Note: The chicken thighs may arrive frozen for freshness. Store them in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost them same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes
What You Get
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs (see note below)
Long-grain white rice
What You'll Need
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Chicken broth (optional)
Hot sauce (optional)
Chop about 1 cup of the onion. Seed and chop the poblanos. Chop 2 cloves garlic, if you have any. Cut the chicken thighs into bite-size pieces and season with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons canola oil. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Return the pan to the heat, add the chopped onion and poblanos, and sauté until they start to soften, 5 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and stir until fragrant, 30 seconds. Stir in ¾ cup rice and 1½ cups chicken broth or water, season with ½ teaspoon salt, and return the chicken to the pan. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat so the liquid is gently simmering, cover, and simmer until the liquid has mostly evaporated and the rice is tender, 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, pick the cilantro, toss the stems, and chop the leaves. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon lime juice, 3 tablespoons canola oil, and a pinch of salt. Add 1 tablespoon of the chopped cilantro and the shredded cabbage and toss to coat.
Cut half of the cheese into cubes. When the liquid is almost gone from the pan, add the cubed cheese, cover again, and cook until melted, 5 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir to combine.
Spoon the chicken and rice into bowls, and sprinkle with the remaining chopped cilantro. Pile the cabbage slaw on the side and serve warm, with hot sauce, if you want a kick.
