Accidental Dinner

The girls claim it's why they're not afraid to be experimental in the kitchen, which is funny, because I've always thought it was more related to my laziness than to being creative. The "it" being my efforts at making accidental dinners. Otherwise known as using what's available and tossing things into the pot that I believe go well together.

Here's my latest effort. It wasn't too bad.

7-8 smallish chicken thighs
salt and pepper
2-3 Tbsp oil
one onion diced
2-3 cloves of garlic
3/4 -1 cup of dry white wine
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups rice
2 small handfuls of real bacon bits
sprinkle of rosemary and thyme

Season thighs with salt and pepper, place in dutch oven with oil over med hi heat. Brown on both sides for about 4 minutes on each side. Turn heat down to medium and add onion, garlic and bacon. Let cook for a minute or two. Add broth, wine, rice, rosemary and thyme. Bring to low boil. Turn to simmer and cover for 30 minutes or more. Add more broth if needed.
