trying to use brown rice more and had some leftover bbq chicken from when i made 2 Beer Butt Chicken / Beer Can...this is what i came up with. modelled after my original arroz con pollo recipe except much easier! you dont have to use the exact same chicken parts that i used, just enough for 6 people...a store bought rotisserie chicken would work great! i have found that this is the best way to cook brown rice so its not mushy like oatmeal..thanks again PanNan!!
