Recipe- Italian Rice with Chickem

I thought i'd do a quick post with this recipe as its mine and Phils current favourite. Its really easy and tastes gorgeous. This makes enough for 2 generous portions.

You'll need
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets diced
1 red onion , cut into 8 wedges or smaller if you prefer
1 garlic clove chopped
100g long grain rice
400g chopped tomatoes
300ml chicken stock

Turn your oven on to heat up at 200C
Heat the oil in a large pan, add your chicken and cook for a few minutes until it goes golden, then remove it from the pan and set aside(i just pop it onto a plate)
Add the onions into the pan and cook for a few minutes until it starts to brown and then add in the garlic and cook for a further minute. Now add and stir in the rice, the tomatoes, the chicken stock and the chicken that had been set aside.
Now turn the heat up and bring the pan to the boil. Now transfer to an ovenproof dish, pop into the oven for 20 minutes uncovered.
Season to taste before you serve.
If you like you can add chopped peppers into this recipe by adding them at the same time as the onions, they'd make it lovely and bright but sadly Phil doesn't like peppers so i forgo them!
