Turmeric garlic rice

This is our standard rice that we have twice a month or more. I would say it is like our macaroni and cheese! When we are unsure about dinner we decide to throw this together.

Directions

1 chicken breast cut into bit size chunks

7 cups water

1 tsp. turmeric

1 tsp. salt or to taste

3 cloves garlic chopped

Olive oil

2 cups basmati rice

Directions

Get a large pot, saute the garlic in Olive oil.

Add the chicken to the pot and saute.

Add the water, salt and Turmeric.

Let this boil, turn down heat and cover. Let this low boil until the chicken is well cooked approximately 30 minutes.

I usually let is simmer longer and let the chicken soak up the flavors.

When chicken is well cooked turn off heat, using slotted spoon remove chicken from broth and set aside.

Measure out 4 1/2 cups of broth and pour into second pan.

Cover and let broth simmer while you measure and rinse the rice if needed. Season broth for taste.At this time carefully add the cooked chicken to the broth.

Let broth come to a boil, carefully add rice, let boil for 7 minutes,  cover, turn heat to medium, cook another 10 minutes, turn to low for another 10 minutes. Fluff rice and stir a bit so it doesn’t stick to pan.

  1. Yum! I love rice, and this is another one I’ll make — in 9 days and 12 hours, plus a few hours to rest. I’d better make that 11 days, just so I’ll have time to find my pots and dishes.

      1. I know of 2 people who are coming, so they will be a big help. Almost asked my son to take my hand held shower head off for me Sunday, then realized I just might want a few more showers between Sunday and Sep. 4. Glad I remembered before I said anything. My kids love to tease me — and let the world know about my bloopers.
