  • 1 Tbls butter
  • 2 cloves garlic , grated
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbls parsley , chopped
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbls brown sugar
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 8 boneless , skinless chicken thighs
  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and stir for a few seconds. Add rice and saute for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Slowly pour in chicken stock, 3/8 tsp salt, and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed, and rice is tender. Remove from heat, and let stand for 5 minutes. Add parsley and black pepper, fluff with a fork.
  2. Preheat broiler to high. Line a jelly roll pan with foil, and spray with nonstick spray.
  3. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, chili powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, and cayenne. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mixture over the chicken. Place chicken on prepared baking sheet. Broil for 5 minutes. Turn and sprinkle the remaining spices over the chicken. Broil for an additional 5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Remove chicken from the pan, and let stand for a couple minutes. Scoop any pan drippings over the chicken to serve.
