DIRECTIONS

  • Place a little oil in a fryer pan or something similar. Season and fry your chicken. Once you flip it to the other side, place 1 cup of water or broth in pan, steam/poach the chicken with the lid on. It will come out tender and juicy.
  • While the chicken is cooking, dice your onions.
  • Slice the cabbage in half, then cut each half into thin strips.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan when done, cut. I used kitchen shears and tongs. Then I can effectively cut a plate of chicken while it is hot and save my fingers. Reserve the liquid from the chicken a measuring cup.
  • Add a small bit more oil to the pan, enough to get the onions sizzling. Saute until translucent. They will get a lot of flavor from the chicken renderings!
  • Add the cabbage. Mix in well, and let the cabbage cook down a bit. Adding a touch of salt will help the cabbage wilt.
  • Add back in, the chicken.
  • Add the julienne carrots and dry rice.
  • Add the full 4 1/2 cups of water or chicken broth. Mix well and tap or pat everything down flat with your spoon.
  • Season appropriately with salt and pepper (if needed). You'll need more if you don't use chicken stock -- less if you do.
  • Place the lid on top and cook until the rice is done. Usually about 16-20 minutes on medium or medium low heat.
