From Cook's Country via Skillet Suppers. I've added the chopped fresh cilantro as garnishment. It can be sprinkled either with the green onion slices or in place of. That cilantro is another ingredient I'm hooked, along with Sriracha, chorizo, lemongrass, jasmine rice...
This recipe is from week 20 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Bahrain is my 20th stop.
Machbous is a spiced rice dish, considered by many to be the national dish of Bahrain (a small island nation in the Persian Gulf). This version is made with chicken.
This is a delicious and LIGHT! pasta dish as well as quite easy to make.
If you love meat, then double the chicken... in the recipe I halved the original amount and like it much better that way. I added the kalamata olives to the original recipe and find it makes it a much better dish (but I loved it before the addition). I also use less feta than called for since I reserve a portion without for myself... I don't like feta.
30 minutes total prep and cooking... I work the whole time it's cooking.
Posting for ZWT#6. From CookingLight contributor Suzanne Rumsey of Fort Wayne, Indiana who won $5000 for this recipe! What would YOU do if you won that money? :) A make ahead and time does not include chilling time. It says 8 servings but think they might be pretty small portions.
From Food and Wine Magazine. I've never had jasmine rice since Zaar World Wide Tour #6. I am so now digging this stuff! Forgot, if you're 'pepper' intolerant, cut it back. Go the length and garish with cilantro and if you must, sub jasmine rice with white, but you'd be missing out.
This is a nice hearty meal that goes together very quickly. You can see how easy this recipe is to adjust for your family’s “spicy” tolerance. None of these ingredients are ever really "optional" here. I tend to add more garlic and some cayenne if there aren't any kids eating. You can use the seasoned varieties of the beans, tomatoes, or anything else. I love Rotel. I serve with some warmed pitas or tortillas.
This is similar to a dish served at a restaurant in San Juan Bautista, which is the only reason I can think of that it's called "Mission" chicken. The bacon and smoked paprika give it a nice smoky flavor my husband likes.....It's quick and easy,and dinner in one pot --that's what I like about it. ***NOTE: Sage grows wild in California, so it was a common seasoning. If you don't like sage, don't use it! Other herbs work well also.
