  • 175g Woolwich Dairy Goat Feta in Brine, cubed
  • 4 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
  • up long grain rice
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2¼ cups chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Pinch of oregano
  • Pinch of thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  6. Cover with a lid and bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove lid and bake an additional 10-15 minutes, until rice and chicken are cooked and liquid has cooked down.
  7. Garnish with cubes of Woolwich Dairy Goat Feta in Brine and serve!
