yellow onion, diced
bell pepper (any color), chopped
garlic cloves, minced
medium carrots, sliced
boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
To begin with, chop, dice, slice, and mince your vegetables.
Next, in a large non-stick pan, cast iron or a saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Sauté onions, carrots, pepper, and garlic until they begin to soften about 3-4 minutes.
Add chicken and brown quickly, then add tomato and cook until the meat is no longer pink about 5-8 minutes.
Stir in the tomato sauce, stock or water, peas, and rice then season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook on low heat, stirring occasionally until rice is cooked through, 10-12 minutes (add more water is necessary to finish cooking the rice).
Finally, sprinkle with fresh parsley leaves before serving.
