NOTE – Prepping is everything! So do all the chopping first.
- 2 hours before making this dish cook your rice. Place it into a medium saucepan, covering the rice with water and cook. Keep testing your rice with a teaspoon and when you are able to just bite through a single grain, making sure it is andante, drain and allow it all to cool, and dry.
- Cut into bite size pieces 3 Lemon Pepper chicken thigh fillets
- Put both sauté pan and frypan on the stove. Into the sauté pan place 2 tablespoons of oil and 1 tablespoon into the frypan.
