Lemon Chicken

Awaiting image
I've not yet had the chance to try this recipe, it was passed to me by a friend and apparently it goes down very well in their house!

Chicken pieces (enough for 4 people)
1 tbs olive oil
1 onion
150g Pancetta cubes
280g Basmati rice
700ml chicken stock 
Juice and zest of 1.5 lemons
2 tsp thyme
2 handfuls of broad beans (these can be bought frozen)
Black pepper

1) Preheat the oven to 220 degrees (don't preheat if using a fan oven).
2) In your casserole dish on the hob heat the chicken pieces in olive oil - they should turn brown.
3) Remove the chicken and fry the onion and pancetta for 2 -3 minutes.
3) Add the rice and stir.
4) Add the stock, lemon juice and zest, thyme, broad beans and black pepper.
5) Bring to the boil, add the chicken pieces back into the pot.
6) Place in the oven with the lid on for 30 - 50 minutes (depending on your oven).
