    Title: Brown Texmati Rice w/Garlic Chicken
    Categories: Poultry, Rice, Vegetables, Herbs
    Yield: 6 Servings

    3 c Chicken stock
    1 1/2 c Brown Texmati rice *
    1/2 c Roasted garlic
    1/4 c Olive oil
    2 ts Lemon juice
    4 lb Whole chicken; cut up, bone
    - in, skin on *
    1 sm Bunch fresh thyme; washed,
    - dried
    Salt & fresh ground pepper

    Set the oven @ 375+|F/190+|C.

    Pour the chicken stock into a medium-sized sauce pot,
    season it with salt and bring it to a boil. Add the
    rice, cover and cook for about 15 minutes. It won't be
    quite done, and some of the stock will not have been
    absorbed -- it will finish cooking later in the oven.

    While the rice is cooking, use a fork to combine 1/4 cup
    of the roasted garlic with the olive oil and lemon juice
    in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    Loosen the skin of each piece of chicken and evenly
    distribute the garlic mixture beneath it. Then, season
    all of the pieces with salt and pepper. Set aside.

    After the rice has cooked for 15 minutes, pour it, along
    with the stock into a 12" round, or 9" x 13" x 2" baking
    dish, and let it cool a bit more, until it's room
    temperature. Then add the chicken pieces to the baking
    dish. Add sprigs of thyme all over the dish - in the
    chicken skin, in the rice, and on top. Drizzle with a
    bit of olive oil, cover with foil, and bake just until
    the chicken is cooked through, about 45 minutes.

    Remove the foil cover after the first 30 minutes of the
    cooking time - this way it will nicely brown during the
    last 15 minutes. The rice and chicken should be done at
    the same time - if the rice needs a bit more time,
    remove the chicken, re-cover the rice, and cook until
    itC╟╓s done. Season the rice generously with salt and

    While the chicken is in the oven, add the remaining
    roasted garlic to a small saut+¼ pan with a bit of olive
    oil, over medium-high heat. Saut+¼ to brown the garlic,
    about 1 minute. (If possible, use a head of roasted
    garlic thatC╟╓s still intact and remove the individual
    cloves with a paring knife to keep them whole.)

    * NOTES: Original called for Basmati rice but Texmati
    was what I had on hand. I used 59c/lb leg quarters
    that I separated into drummer and thigh. Thyme came
    from Food Fantasies fresh herbs selection since my
    raised bed garden is not quite ready yet.
