Cooking MethodCasserole


  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 10 pieces)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pound button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup Plain 0% Chobani Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning or fresh mixed herbs, such as rosemary, thyme and basil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Working in batches, brown chicken about 3 to 5 minutes on both sides. (Chicken does not have to be cooked through, just browned.) Remove chicken to bowl and set aside.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Lower heat to medium, add onions and cook, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds more. Spoon onions and garlic into a shallow 9 x 13 x 2 3-quart casserole dish.
  6. Raise heat to medium high. Add mushrooms to skillet.
  7. Sauté, until lightly brown, and mushrooms release some moisture. Add mushrooms to baking dish.
  8. Add 1/4 cup chicken stock to pan, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan. Let reduce to about 1 tablespoon.
  9. Add remaining 2½ cups stock and remove from heat. Whisk in Chobani and 1½ teaspoons salt.
  10. Stir rice into baking dish. Stir yogurt-stock mixture into rice.
  11. Add Italian seasoning (or fresh herbs) and to dish.
  12. Place chicken on rice mixture in a single layer. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 75 minutes.
  13. Remove foil. If there's too much liquid, let cook 5 minutes.
  14. Sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving.
