This is almost too easy, but it works and it’s good. And as most good things in life, it was shared between best friends.
Chicken and Yellow Rice
1 package chicken legs, thighs or breasts, whichever you prefer, leaving the skin on
oil for browning – I use canola
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 – 10 oz. package Vigo yellow rice.
Brown chicken in skillet – one with matching lid – then drain; set aside. Cook rice according to package. Bring water to a boil, add rice, onions and garlic and mix until well combined, cooking for one minute. I add about 1/2 cup extra water here, because I prefer my rice to be “stickier” in the end product. Add chicken back to pan, cover and simmer, 20-30 minutes or until rice is finished.
Makes a great compliment to black beans and fried plantains (you can find these ready made in the freezer section of your supermarket).
