Chicken & Rice


Since I was
a little girl, I always loved this dish. I used to get so excited when mom
prepared chicken and rice.
So, weeks
ago I remembered this dish and asked mom for her recipe. She gave it to me and
totally authorized me to use it and post it on my blog.
So here it
is, to share with you.

So, you will need:
  • 2 chicken
    breasts, bone and skinless, in half
  • 3 chicken
    legs, bone and skinless
  • 2 cups unsalted
    and ungreased chicken broth
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 cup
    tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp
    Knorr’s Chicken Broth bouillon
  • ¼ stick
    butter
  • 1 tsp
    vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tbsp
    ground cumin
  • 1 tsp salt

First, you need to heat the vegetable oil and melt the butter in a deep pot. A big one. All the chicken and rice must fit in.

You will place the chicken in order to seal it in the melted butter. 

Turn it around.

And around. It won’t cook completely, just seal.

Now, remove and reserve the chicken and fry the rice (rinse the rice first). 

Stirring for 5 minutes. Maybe you will need more oil. Add oil.

Add the chicken again and stir trying not to break the chicken.
In a blender, mix chicken broth, tomato puree, chicken broth bouillon, ground cumin and salt.

Place the liquid blend in the pot where the chicken and rice are and stir carefully until well blended. 

Place a medium heat and when it starts boiling, cover.

When you cover, lower the heat to the minimum around an hour. The rice must be almost dry. 

Turn the heat off and leave it covered for 20 minutes.

Serve.

Looks good, huh?

Wanna try?

Yum!

Let me know how it goes!
