Solo Chicken Mushroom Pilaf

Solo Chicken Mushroom Pilaf created by Bill Hilbrich

There is usually just enough flavorful liquid in the final dish to prompt me to eat this with a spoon. The natural flavoring of the mushrooms is similar to MSG and when paired with the sweetness of sauted onions, that was enough flavor for me. However Cooking is a Creative Sport, so feel free to add spices. I found that adding a quarter teaspoon of curry powder during step four made a very pleasant variation, and the kitchen smelled wonderful.

    Rather plain recipe, but very easy to cook! I added tony's, tabasco, salt, minced garlic, pepper, spinach, broccoli, and chicken seasoning. This livened up the flavor by quite a bit, and it became and pretty tasty meal :)

    Thank you Bill for a beautful dinner. I loved how it looked after itself. Will for sure be making this again. Might even think of making it for a quick lunch.

    Excellent! Tasty, easy to prepare, and perfect for lunch. I made a few minor changes - I used a larger chicken breast (200g), and reduced the butter to 1 tsp and oil to 2 tsp. I added 2 tsp of rose wine ("cooking juice") when I added the rice. I wanted to add the curry powder, but forgot :-) so I added a splash of soy sauce when I served it. A red bell pepper sautéed with the onions could add some color - I think I will give it a try.
