I am faced with a dilemma. Just the other day I was ready to roast some chicken drumsticks in the oven only to find the bottom element dead as a doornail… It took me almost 40min to cook the drumsticks in a grill pan. This I am not used to…
So, I had to adapt. From now on, until our oven is fixed, I need to cook dinner for the hubby (who doesn’t eat ANY veggies) and the fussy boy, by only using the stove top. Not a mission at all when you can enjoy a delicious Creamy Chicken and Rice Bowl, right?
Here is what I did.
I hammered the poor chicken breasts flat and cooked them in butter until done.
Then as you remove the chicken breasts from the pan, add the cream and allow to reduce in the hot pan – soaking up all the chicken frying goodness left over.
I had to cook rice since roasted potatoes are simply not going to happen. WHY!!? I added chopped tomato and onion salsa to the rice for extra flavour and texture.
It’s a delicious and quick meal to have ready for dinner after a hectic day – it tastes amazing and should be pretty filling to the crowds.
Just to give you all a heads up. This creamy sauce is amazing. Since I’ve made this dish, I’ve tried it on cooked baby potatoes and even added it to my chicken salad I had for lunch the next day. You simply have to try it. What is your favorite chicken recipe? Please share below and have a good week!
