The finished Chicken SofritoA great meal for the cooler weather. You could add more vegetables to the dish for a one-pan meal. The peppers and garlic scapes came from the garden.


I used brown rice instead of white, and increased my cooking time to 45 minutes. I also used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
