DO NOT WASH RAW CHICKEN!
You can actually spread bacteria by doing so. Splashing water from the tap can get onto your hands, work surface, cooking materials, etc.
Use a cast iron skillet, because it goes from stovetop to oven to table
Use dark meat, bone-in, skin-on chicken
Look for broth with No Salt Added
Use long grain white rice. Brown rice requires a much longer cooking time, and the chicken will overcook
Dirty Rice Chicken Skillet is done when the liquid is fully absorbed. For the recipe as-is, I use a 10.5″ skillet and bake for about 45 minutes. For half the recipe, I use an 8″ skillet and bake for about 35 minutes
PERFECT FOR MEAL PREP
: divide into portions, store in airtight containers in the fridge, and you have lunch for a week!
