  • 4 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Pat chicken dry with paper towel and salt and pepper both sides. Over medium high, add olive oil to a 12” Lodge Blacklock skillet. Brown chicken thighs on both sides starting with skin side down–2-3 mins each side, remove and set aside.
  3. Lower heat to medium, sauté onion, garlic and thyme, until soft, 2-3 minutes. Add rice and combine until coated, 1-2 minutes. Add wine and reduce— approximately 1-2 mins, add stock, cheese and pepper and stir to combine. Add back chicken, skin side up, into pan. Finish with some black pepper and kosher salt to taste.
