Chicken on Vegetable Rice recipe by Ninik Becker.

This one-pan dish is practical and very easy to make. Suitable for somebody who lazy to clean up after cooking, like me.

Choose a pan with a lid, non-stick is better to prevent burnt at the bottom of the pan. Personally I like crusty rice that slightly brown, to add different textures. Those rice that usually somewhat harder to chew.

Ingredients :

Chicken :

  • 4 pieces chicken, bone-in, skin-on (I used 2 drumsticks and 2 chicken breast).
  • salt, pepper, coriander powder, ginger powder and turmeric powder. Adjust follow your instinct.
  • 3 tbsp oil

Make a small slice on each chicken. Rub all seasoning on the chicken. Brown the chicken in the pan with hot oil until half-cooked and all sides turned brown. Set aside.

Rice :

Basically the ingredients here are from what you have in the fridge. So feel free to change and adjust.

  • 2 cups uncooked Basmati rice or other rice
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • half fresh paprika, strips
  • a handful of Brussels sprout, sliced
  • 2 tsp salt or less
  • a pinch of paprika powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 cup of kidney beans from a can
  • dried or fresh parsley

Method :

  1. Use a pan to cook the chicken earlier, remember that you already cook the chicken before?
  2. If necessary add more oil into the pan, sauté onion until softened, add minced garlic, season with salt and cook about 3 minutes.
  3. Add uncooked basmati rice/other rice, stock, paprika powder, turmeric powder. Stir.
  4. Bring to boil, lower the heat. Arrange half-cooked chicken and kidney beans over the rice.
  5. Cover the pan and simmer for about 20-25 minutes or more until the liquid absorbed and rice cooked.
  6. Ten minutes before finish cooking, add brussels sprout and fresh paprika. Continue cooking until finish.
  7. Sprinkle with dried parsley. I don’t have fresh one at the time.

Serve the pan of rice on the table together with green vegetables or salad.
