It’s chicken and rice time!
Chicken and Rice, without a doubt, is the ultimate one-pan comfort meal. It’s ubiquitous in many cultures; everyone seems to have their own version of chicken rice. It’s easy to understand why it’s so universally well-liked. It’s always tasty, filling, comforting, and easy to prepare. Aaaand… it’s economical as well, the two main ingredients being affordable most of the time.
Whenever I can’t think of anything else to cook, or don’t have time to shop for groceries, I end up making some kind of chicken rice. I always, always have chicken and rice!
I make the following on a regular basis: Spanish chicken paella, Italian chicken risotto, Chinese chicken fried rice, and Latin American arroz con pollo (pictured above). All of them are good!
My absolute favorites, though, are the Indian Chicken Biryani and the Hainanese Chicken Rice. Which begs the question of why I don’t make them as routinely as the others. Probably because they require a little more effort. But, hey, that’s what weekends are for! I think I’ll try making one of them this weekend. TGIF!
Now, let’s take a look at these:

Chicken and rice is really has a wide range of things you can make. I’m personally a fan of chicken soup with rice. 🙂 Thanks for hosting. I brought by some Pesto Stuffed Chicken this week. It only looks fancy! 🙂
Yup, it’s such a versatile dish. You can add or omit other ingredients to make different styles of chicken rice. Add butter and it becomes Iranian polow, add red palm oil and it becomes Nigerian jolloff. Brilliant, isn’t it? Pesto stuffed chicken does sound really fancy!

We often have fried rice with roasted chicken. Thank you for hosting Angie.
We do, too! Especially when I’m too busy to cook anything elaborate. Fried rice to the rescue ?
