This is light and flavorful. I started using instant rice but now I use the basmati rice and WOW what a difference. It brings so much to the flavor.


  1. Cut up the whole chicken but don't throw anything away, there is a lot of flavor to be had.
  2. Place chicken in a pot of salted water and simmer until done.
  3. Pull the chicken from the water and set the water aside.
  4. Let the chicken cool then remove from the bone.
  5. Take about 2 1/2 cups of water from your reserve and place in a pot.
  6. Add your chicken and rice then bring to a boil.
  7. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 mins.
  8. Fluff rice and salt and pepper to taste.
