Ingredients
Roasted Chicken Thighs:
  • 4-5 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
  • salt, pepper
Parsley Rice Pilaf:
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups boiling water
Toppings:
  • 2-3 ears of corn, kernels cut off the cob (you can also use canned corn)
  • 4-6 oz shredded cheese (Colby, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, etc.)
  • ½ cup shredded lettuce
  • sour cream
  • Other optional toppings: cooked beans, chickpeas, jalapeño, sliced cabbage,
  • Pico de Gallo
Guacamole:
  • 3 avocados
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • ½ shallot, minced (or ½ Tablespoon red or yellow onion)
  • ½ - 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ - 1 jalapeño, minced
  • 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
  • salt, pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Season the chicken with salt and ground black pepper on both sides. Place in a 400 degree Fahrenheit preheated oven and roast for 35-45 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, and the internal temperature reaches 175 degrees Fahrenheit. Set the chicken aside until it's cool enough to handle. Take the skin off the chicken and tear the meat into bite-sized pieces with two forks. Discard the skin and bones. You can also roast a bone-in, skin on chicken breast, just roast it until the meat reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. You can use any cooked meat that you like, like Pulled Pork, Pulled Beef, sautéed or grilled meat or chicken or even shrimp. You can sauté the meat in a skillet as well. Omit the meat completely to make this vegetarian. Instead of meat, you can use beans, chickpeas, etc.
  3. Prepare the Parsley Rice Pilaf. Add parsley when the rice is cooked. You can use cilantro instead of rice and also add some lime juice. Sometimes I use brown rice instead of white rice and it's just as delicious.
  4. Prepare the Guacamole by mashing the avocado with a fork and adding the rest of the ingredients, except for the tomatoes, unless you are serving the guacamole immediately.
  5. If you make the guacamole ahead of time, cover it with plastic wrap, so that the plastic wrap lies directly on the surface of the guacamole. Guacamole will start to turn brown quickly, so by covering it with plastic wrap, you are preventing the oxidation. Add the tomatoes right before serving. The surface of the guacamole may turn brown, but as soon as you mix it up, it will be green again.
  6. Serve the rice and chicken with all the toppings, letting everyone make a bowl with all the toppings that they like.
