If you are looking for some chicken and rice recipes, then this one is definitely worth a try. This chicken and rice recipe is best served with steamed white rice. I had to make adjustments to the recipe to make it more healthy since I tend to eat a lot of white rice.
For this chicken and rice recipe, I used panko bread crumbs in place of regular flour. You don’t really need a cracker. The bread crumbs work just fine. The most important thing is to brown the rice evenly before serving. It does not take long to make the rice look good when seasoned with seasonings.
For this chicken and rice recipe, I found it easy to use my rice cooker. The rice cooker allows me to cook the chicken without having to use any other cooking tools. The chicken is cut into thin pieces so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the rice. You can serve this chicken with some baked potatoes and red or green bell pepper. Make sure that you add plenty of flavor to the rice when cooking it. If you don’t like spicy foods, you might want to try mild chicken or beef flavors.
Another way to make this chicken and rice recipe healthier is by cooking it on the stove. The rice absorbs the flavors of the chicken well. I usually brown the chicken in a non-stick frying pan before I add seasonings. When I’m done, I pour the cooked rice on top of the fried chicken. It’s easy, fast, and delicious. You can even make chicken nuggets with this recipe.
You can add a little bit of butter or oil to help moisten the rice as well. You don’t have to use it a lot. Just make sure that the butter or oil isn’t too heavy for you to stir around in the pan. It should be easily estimable.
To make sure that the chicken is completely coated in batter, you will want to bake it in the rice cooker for about two hours. Remove the chicken from the cooker when it is done to help avoid excess fat that could prevent it from coating properly. Then you just spoon the coating onto your baked chicken. You can sprinkle it with a little bit of coarse salt for that added flavor. If you are serving it with rolls, you can cut them into quarters to be more appetizing.
For a week-day meal, this chicken and rice recipe makes a great meal. You can serve it with macaroni and cheese, broccoli rice, or as a side with sandwiches. It’s a great change of pace to serve this chicken and rice in your diet when you are on a diet. Because of its low-fat content, you don’t need to worry about reducing the number of carbohydrates you eat. The chicken will keep you from getting hungry throughout the day.
To maximize the freshness of the ingredients you use, you will want to marinate your chicken before cooking. If you already have a marinade made, that would work great. If not, you will want to buy some Italian dressing and put it into your water. Then just add it to your rice along with all of the other ingredients you have for the recipe. Then just let it sit in your rice cooker for two hours. That is all there is to this great chicken and rice cooker recipe!
