Easy Cheesy Chicken and Rice

2 cups chicken broth
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley

Pat chicken thighs with a paper towel to remove moisture and season with salt and pepper. Melt butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and brown chicken on all sides.  Remove chicken from skillet and cut into bite sized pieces. Set aside.























Using a wooden spoon, scrap up the brown bits from bottom of skillet. Add rice to skillet, stirring to blend in with chicken bits from bottom of skillet.
























Pour in chicken broth and bring to a full boil. Turn heat down to low and cover with a lid.  Cook for 15 minutes or until rice is cooked and liquid gone.























Remove cover and fluff up the rice with fork.  Add cut up chicken thighs and stir to combine.  Sprinkle cheese on top and cover again until cheese has melted.  Season with more salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle on parsley and serve.
