  • 3/4 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 6 skinless chicken breasts, or 6 skinless chicken thighs and drumsticks (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola or corn oil
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14-15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, with juice

  3. Add the rice to 3 cups boiling water in a medium saucepan; cover and simmer 50 to 60 minutes.
  4. While the rice is cooking, put the chicken in the prepared pan. Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes.
  5. While the chicken is cooking, saute the onion, pepper, and garlic in the oil in a large skillet for 5 minutes, until tender; add the curry powder, thyme, and salt and blend thoroughly. Add the tomatoes with their liquid, and the parsley; heat to a simmer.
