Perfect midweek meal – Quick and easy – Tarragon Chicken and Onion Rice

Today was a bit of a rush, I have had my hair ‘done’, which is great, but takes aaagggess….

I have 4 Chicken Thighs I have wrenched out of the freezer, so fancied Tarragon Chicken, will make some Onion Rice to have it with ๐Ÿ˜‹

For the rice, I gently fry half a finely diced onion, then I add a mug of brown rice and 2 and a half mugs of water and a good shake of mixed herbs, bring to the boil, simmer for 2/3 minutes then turn off the heat and put on a tight lid and leave to absorb.

Whilst this is steaming, I start the Tarragon Chicken by peeling and finely dicing a medium onion, and cut the cheicken thighs each into 4.

In a pan, I gently fry the onion, till translucent and then add the chicken, stir and coat and cook till almost done.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
