Historic Lynchburg Greek Baked Chicken with Sweet Peppers and Yellow Rice

  • 1 chicken, cut into 8 pieces (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 Tablespoons Historic Lynchburg Steak & Burger Seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoon Historic Lynchburg Jack The Greek Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter (Kerry Gold preferred)
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bell peppers (1 yellow, 1 red) seeded, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup medium- or long-grain rice
  • 1 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup peas, thawed frozen or cooked fresh

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Pat the chicken dry and season with Historic Lynchburg Steak & Burger Seasoning an Historic Lynchburg Jack The Greek Seasoning then let it marinate in refrigerator uncovered for 30 minutes. Melt the butter with the oil in a large deep skillet, with a lid over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, and cook until well browned, about 6 minutes. Turn chicken and cook until other side browns lightly, about 2 minutes more. Transfer chicken to a plate. Pour off all but about 2-3 tablespoons of the fat while trying to leave the the spices and any charred peices in the pan.
  2. Add the onion to the skillet and cook, stirring often, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Add the peppers and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the turmeric, cumin, rice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt and stir until the rice is coated. Pour in the broth, stir to distribute the rice evenly. Increase the heat to high and boil until liquid begins to be absorbed into the rice, about 2 minutes. Nestle the chicken in the rice. Cover and transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the rice is tender and chicken cooks through, about 25 minutes.
  3. Remove the cover, fluff the rice and stir in the peas. Cover and let sit to warm the peas, about 5 minutes. Season with additional Jack The Greek Seasoning and serve.
