Chicken, chorizo and brown rice

This recipe was right up my alley. Chicken thighs, chorizo and brown rice to put a slightly healthy spin on it. Yes, I know chicken thighs are more fatty than breasts, but they actually taste like chicken and have a much better flavor.

As for the chorizo, I was disapointed that I couldn't find any of the smoked, dried variety at my local store and what I ended up with was a bit greasy, but the flavor couldn't be beat. Rory found it a bit spicy, and it did have somewhat of a kick, but I enjoyed thoroughly. The flavors really popped.

I didn't use the peas, I just don't care for the texture, even though the color would have been nice. This was my first time cooking with brown rice as well and it had a nice texture. I'm going to try cooking with it again.

And yes, I've been forgetting to take pictures, I will do my best to remedy coming up.

Sounds like a great recipe. Brown rice is the only rice I cook with. I recommend rinsing or if you have more time, soaking the rice in cold water for an hour before using it. It will make it fluffier.
