John loves chicken and rice. I am trying and trying to perfect the recipe, but I have been failing. This try was pretty close to perfect. Check it out!
First, I sliced up some chicken thighs. I made sure they were really thin so they would cook quickly.
Then, I had to create a marinade. It was supposed to be made with barbecue sauce, but I wanted to make my own. Unfortunately, I didn’t think of this in time, and didn’t have a good recipe ready. I ended up just winging it. How? With one small can of tomato paste and an equal amount of vinegar.
I mixed it up and added in brown sugar, salt, and garlic.
I mixed it with the chicken and let it marinade. The next day, I threw it all in a pan to cook.
In the meantime, I melted down chicken stock.
When it was melted, I added 2 cups of brown rice and the cooked chicken (and the sauce it was cooking in).
Then, it just cooked and cooked on low. Occasionally, I stirred it.
John liked it with toasted slivered almonds…
… But I like it just plain!
