Lemon Pepper Chicken with Rice

Combine 3 tablespoons lemon pepper, 1 tablespoon paprika and 2 cloves minced garlic in a small bowl.

In a large oven proof pot, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium heat. Season both sides of the chicken and place in the pot skin side down. Cook for 3 minutes.

Turn the heat up to medium high and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until brown. Turn the chicken over and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Remove chicken from the pot and set aside.

With a paper towel, carefully wipe out excess fat from the pot but leave the seasoning. On medium high, melt 2 tablespoons butter in the pot and add 1 yellow diced onions and 4 more cloves minced garlic.

Cook about 1 to 2 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add 1 and 1/2 cups Arborio rice and stir another minute or two, until it becomes translucent.

Pour 1/4 cup white wine and let it cook another 2 minutes until most of the wine has evaporated. Stir in 4 cups chicken broth, 1 cup of milk, and a dash of pepper. Bring it to a simmer.

Place the chicken back into the pot. Cover with a lid or foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and back for another 10 minutes.
