Course Chicken &amp, Poultry
Servings 4 -6 servings


  • 1 - 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 1/2 - 3 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs (or bone - in if you prefer)
  • 2 cup chicken broth - i use a chicken & tomato bouillon
  • 8 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Adobo seasoning Goya
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • prepared rice i use about 1 1/2 cups uncooked


  • Heat up oil in a dutch oven or large skillet over medium/high heat.
  • Salt & pepper both sides of chicken. Add chicken to dutch oven and lightly brown on both sides.
  • Add broth, bay leaves, adobo, garlic, oregano and parsley.
  • Bring to a boil. Stir occasionally and simmer for a few minutes until all broth & spices seem well combined.
  • Reduce heat to low/med-low. Simmer, covered, for about an hour. Make sure you keep bay leaves in broth. Spoon broth over chicken occasionally & flip chicken thighs once or twice during cooking. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • I like to serve this in a pasta bowl. I place a piece of chicken and a few tablespoons of broth in the bowl - then spoon in a serving of rice on top. This way you can eat the rice & broth together but the rice doesn't get too mushy.
  • Enjoy : )
