The name says it all - not authentic, but satisfying nonetheless. The happy result of a brainstorm session when faced with leftover cooked chicken and leftover rice from chinese takeout...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onion, peppers and celery for 3 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and sautee 1 more minute.
  3. Pour in diced tomatoes, chicken broth and potatoes. Stir, bring to a low boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. Add chicken, rice, cayenne pepper (the amount you use depends on your family's tolerance for spicy food - I usually give about 4 dashes), salt & pepper and sugar.
  5. Let cook for another 20-30 minutes to bring flavors together. Enjoy!
