    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a large skillet over med-high heat until shimmering but not smoking.
    4. 4
      Add the ham and cook until the fat has rendered, about 6 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the bacon and cook until slightly crisp, about 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Use a slotted spoon to remove the ham and bacon from the pan and set aside on a paper towel-lined plate.
    7. 7
      Spoon off and discard all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the pan and return to the burner.
    8. 8
      Reduce the heat to medium; add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 4 minutes.
    9. 9
      Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
    10. 10
      Stir in the rice, thyme, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring frequently, until the rice is coated and glistening, about 1 minute.
    11. 11

    12. 12
      Return the skillet to the heat; add the chicken broth, water, salt, and pepper to taste.

      Cover the baking dish tightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
    16. 16
