This is a great way to make rice. I used brown rice and cooked it according to the directions on the back but I added the can of Rotel and cumin and beans. I loved the beans in the rice. COMPLEX CARBS! The chicken was great with it. Similar to a one pot chicken and rice (Arroz con pollo -esque) but better.
I wasnt up to going to the grocery store so used the recipe sifter to find a recipe with ingredients I had on hand and so happy I found this one! Did need to make a few adjustments for our taste and used diced tomatoes instead of Rotel, dried minced onion and garlic pepper seasoning for the chicken. My chicken was getting done quicker than I wanted it to so I added some chicken stock and covered the skillet to finish cooking. For the rice I added chili powder, a pinch of red pepper flakes, lemon pepper, salt, and pepper. The flavor was wonderful and very close to what a can of Rotel would have offered. Very quick and so easy to make! Thank you Gatorbek for a wonderful supper.
I've got to agree with the unusual name, but this is one fantastic dish! I've never had anything quite like it, and I know I'll need several repeats! I used brown jasmine rice which required a longer cooking time. The aroma brought everyone to the kitchen to see what was cookin'. Fabulous, Gatorbek..thanks!
