Feel free to substitute for the olives by adding more onions, celery, or carrots. Personally, I think black or green olives add an unexpected little twist, but not everyone is as big a fan of olives as I am. My favorite pizza? A cheese pizza with nothing on top but tons of green olives.
An Easy Chicken Recipe: Chicken With Rice
1 small chicken, cut up
1 can (16 oz) peas
1 onion, chopped
1 small can or jar of mushrooms
2 large stalks celery, chopped
4 medium carrots, sliced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 jar olives, chopped
1 can (8 oz) tomato paste
Garlic, salt, and pepper, to taste
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 pkg. long grain rice
In a large saucepan, cook chicken in enough water to cover. Drain, reserving broth. Shred the chicken, discarding the bones. Combine the peas, onion, mushrooms, celery, carrots, tomatoes, olives, tomato paste, and green pepper in a large saucepan or Dutch Oven. Add enough water to cover and season with garlic, salt, and pepper.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until carrots are tender.
Prepare rice according to the directions on the package, but substitute the reserved broth for water. Very important! Serve chicken mixture over rice.
Yield: 12 servings
Anytime you’re making rice, substitute chicken broth for the water in the recipe and you’ll be blown away by the results. Somehow, chicken broth just takes rice to a whole new delicious level. Normally, I love butter on cooked rice but when you use chicken broth instead of water, you don’t need the butter at all.
