This dish is another great leftover dish to use that remaining chicken you have from the wonderful Roast Chicken you made the other night :)
Start With The Rice
While it is cooking, oh about 20 minutes for white rice (I like basmati,) and maybe 45-50 minutes for brown rice, which is what we have here, you will make the Curried Chicken.
Brown rice is my definite favorite. It makes me feel like I’m doing something good and healthy. And I need as much of that as absolutely possible, because you can bet I love my Dark Chocolate with Mint 3 Musketeers bar! Yes, I do. I admit it.
Cooked Brown Rice
If you don’t own a rice cooker, I semi-implore you to go get one. You can live without one. That is for sure. And if you are doing serious budget work, then don’t get it, but if you can fit it in, this is another of my favorite kitchen tools.
Why I Like Rice Cookers
I can put all the ingredients in several hours ahead of time. Rice, water, olive oil, salt. Then just let it sit there, all afternoon if necessary, and when I’m ready, all I have to do is flip that little switch and perfect rice is on the way. All by itself. Amazing. I think I got this at StuffMart.
Groan. Fuzzy photo.
And now, I know you saved that good chicken broth from the bottom of your pan when you made that Roast Chicken. And put it in a jar. Right? Ok, next time. Just use some bouillon or canned broth if you don’t have this. I sure don’t mean to make you feel bad. Just joking around :)
They were stored in the fridge with the chicken. Ok. They are not gross or anything :)
Let’s see. That took 1 hour and 7 minutes. Probably a record. But that doesn’t mean much. This was one of the easier topics.
And by the way, I have been on a recipe rampage lately. Promise I will get to some other topics soon, but you know how it is. Gotta just go with the flow.
Love you guys for reading these ramblings!
