2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup sweet yellow onion, diced
cup (pour ⅓ olive brine over the rice)
1 large orange, sliced
brown rice: cover the bottom of a glass dish/pan
1 tablespoon honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large, juicy-ripe tomato, thinly sliced


Sprinkle enough brown rice to cover 1/4 inch of a large glass pan or oven safe baking dish. Place the eight chicken drumsticks across the brown rice. Pour the orange juice, heavy cream, and olive brine over the chicken and rice. Drizzle the honey and olive oil over the top of the chicken. Garnish the chicken with olives, orange slices, tomato slices, minced garlic, onion and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and bake for one hour, or until chicken is slightly browned. If the liquid evaporates under the chicken, you add a few tablespoons of water or orange juice.
