3. In a large flameproof casserole over high heat, heat the vegetable oil. Brown the
chicken, skin side down, without crowding the pan. Cook without disturbing for 6 minutes. Turn and brown the other side for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Brown the remaining chicken in the same way; remove from the pan.

4. Add the onion, salt, and black pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, for 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, 2 minutes more. Add the bell peppers, cumin, chili powder, and canned chipotle and continue cooking for 6 minutes.

5. Add the rice and stir well. Place the chicken and all the juices that accumulated in the bowl into the pan. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil. Cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 30 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the chicken is cooked through. Taste for seasoning and add more chipotle, if you like. Reserve 2 cups of cooked rice and 3 pieces of chicken for the enchiladas.
