  • Summary

    The bold flavors of saffron, bay leaves, and garlic infuse Valencia rice, a Spanish variety perfect for slow-cooked dishes (it is the traditional base for paella). Here, the grains are cooked up with golden-brown chicken thighs and garnished with pimiento-stuffed olives. Saffron gives the rice its warm yellow hue.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup dry white wine
    • Pinch of saffron
    • 6 chicken thighs (6 ounces each)
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 large onion, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons minced garlic (2 to 3 cloves)
    • 1 large tomato, diced
    • 2 dried bay leaves
    • 4 1/2 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock, plus more if needed
    • 3 cups short-grain rice, preferably Valencia
    • 1 cup pimiento-stuffed green olives
