I was looking for a fast, simple recipe using chicken thighs (hubby loves these) and rice.Something that wasn't the usual "pour on a can of soup". I found a good "base" idea on "AllRecipes, (contributed by "Carol B.) The original recipe called for boullion and water, I think the stock is much tastier so started my changes there. I added the celery to the onion which was called for, and because I had asparagus in the fridge I thought that would be nice as well. I used paprika because I thought it could use just a splash of color. If I had not been lazy I would have diced up some pimento or roasted red pepper. This is the kind of easy "pantry" recipe that would lend itself to your tastes and pantry. So now this recipe is posted and I am adding this "after the fact" Made the dish for dinner and it was bland, flat and without the asparagus would have been completely tasteless. Added the ingredients listed below, and helped tremendously. I still think that this is a great "base" recipe....play with it.
