Chicken and Rice-

Ok, So that is whats for dinner. there are sooooooo many ways to prepare it and I think every country has a take on this dish. I have boneless -skinless breasts (Boring) and regular rice- I can't make up my mind on which flavor to go with. Last night we Had Spagehhie with Lamb, and eggplant in tomato sauce with a greek salad and cheese bread with fresh basil.
I am open for suggestions. The one I end up going with gets best answer!!!

  • I don't know, sounds like you are a very creative and probably gourmet) cook, so I just think I want to go to your house for dinner.

    After your dinner last night, I probably would go with a a creamy basil sauce, some steamed veggies and blueberry muffins.
    Although I love to saute the chicken breasts with red bell peppers, onions and garlic, de-glaze with some white wine, and simmer with a little chicken broth then serve over the rice, which I might cook with a little cilantro and lime.

  • I have turmeric and can make my own yellow rice and I have some homemade Pico de Gallo sauce in the freezer that I had made too much of this summer. Since the kids have Spanish 2 I told the we were have Arroz con Pollo for dinner. :)

  • Do you have any type of sausage? Chicken and sausage with mushrooms and pasta is awesome!

  • grilled chicken with Mrs Dash extra spicy on it then smother it with any kind of cheese you want and then make rice pilaf.

  • My family loves jalopeno chicken

    boil or bake chicken breasts.
    prepare rice.
    In bowl mix one container sour cream with one can cream of chicken soup.
    Grate one block pepperjack cheese in the mix.
    Add tiny can of green chiles (optional)
    Add rice and chicken to cheese mixture.
    Pour into casserole dish and bake.

    You can also season the chicken with taco seasoning beforehand and grill it and just serve it along side the cheesy rice.

  • i like to fry chicken with onions and garlic and while boiling rice I add a little oil. I add a can or two of black beans, can of diced tomatoes, add Old Bay to taste. It is simple and you can add what you like and mix it in a bowl.
