This came from one of the church-member books, years ago, attributed to Gourmet by the Bay in Virginia Beach. I have done this more simply by using frozen cooked shrimp and packaged chicken short cuts. It makes a pretty presentation and holds up well for left-overs
It's the end of summer and I'm pulling out all the fall and winter favorites. These potatoes are a great accompaniment to any meat dish that doesn't create a gravy. Do not put the dish together before you bake the potatoes, because the cream sauce will react with the potatoes and they will turn gray if they sit. I learned this the hard
So good and can add ground turkey. hamburger, cooked chicken - pork etc. and make it a meal. or leave it as a side dish. I also sometimes add Jalapeno Peppers for a kick! I also use brown rice. The prep time includes cooking and cooling rice
Found it on Taste of Home
I know there are other recipes for Oriental Coleslaw here. I mentioned in a thread on "everything else" that my local grocery store makes the best one I've ever tasted, and one of the girls behind the counter gave me the recipe!
Brown rice is SO much better for you than white rice. It has more nutrients and about 3 times more fiber than white rice does.
I never really cared for brown rice UNTIL I tasted this one. You can do as many variations as you like with it. Add your favorite herbs, spices or veggies to it. Make it vegetarian by using veggie cubes instead of chicken. The rice turns out perfectly fluffy and delicious. The aroma that fills your house while it's baking is wonderful and it's hard to wait until it's done to sneak a taste. As it bakes the bay leaves will rise to the top so they can be easily 'fished' out of the casserole before serving. I like to top the finished rice with freshly chopped cilantro and a twist of black pepper. For a nice crunch you can add chopped water chestnuts.
You'll never buy the fried rice from the local Chinese restaurant when you discover how easy and (above all) great tasting this recipe is. The secret is the sesame oil. If you don't have that, don't bother making it! Can add cooked chunked baby carrots and peas, if desired. Cold rice works best so it doesn't get mushy. I usually cook my rice the day before and keep in the refrigerator until ready to prepare.
I worked for KFC for 3 years and coleslaw making was a near daily occurrence. This is the real recipe scaled down to table size. I see lot of recipes claiming to be the real thing but none are. This is the real thing. The sugar amount is not a typo.
I am an avid collector of recipes. A young lady, a former KFC employee, was looking at my recipes one evening when she discovered this one. She told me that the recipe was close, but that I should remove the vinegar and lemon juice and replace them with tarragon vinegar. Tarragon vinegar is the secret. Note: This is one of the recipes I adopted in the Great 'Zaar Orphan Adoption of 2005. I hope you enjoy it.
