Just the word florentine conjures up elegant images of creamy-greeny goodness. There’s all that and more in this take on a classic, classy comfort food. Shallot, garlic and mushrooms sizzle on the stovetop, waiting for leafy greens and heavy cream to complete the sumptuous sauce. It gets spooned over tender pan-seared chicken thighs, atop a bed of long-grain rice that’s been duly fluffed and buttered. Oven-browned Brussels sprouts slip in on the side to catch some sauce, too.

Cook the rice
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.

Roast the Brussels sprouts
Meanwhile, remove the root ends of the Brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise (or quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ¼ of the spices and S&P. Roast, stirring halfway, 14 to 16 min., until golden brown and tender.

Cook the chicken
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.
