Arrange the chicken on top, cover and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken and rice are tender. Add a little more stock during the cooking time if necessary to prevent the fish from drying out.

Remove and discard the bay leaves. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary. Serve the drumsticks on top of the rice, garnished with flat leaf parsley.
