You might be tired of all the food talk, but I sort of want to remember how I did these things so when I want to make it again, I remember!! So, you will just have to put up with it! Last night I made a curried rice skillet. It was a hit! The boys loved it! I added a bit of fine noodles to it also.
Skillet rice dishes- It usually takes about 30 min. for this.
In a cast iron pan heat a little oil, add 1. 5 mugs of rice, 2-3 garlic cloves in the garlic press, and cook until lightly browned.
Add 3.25 mugs of water and 2 t chicken boullion or chicken broth. Depending on what kind of rice dish you are making, depends on the seasoning.
Spanish rice- add 2 t. cumin and 2 T. tomato paste
Broccoli- part of a bag of chopped frozen broccoli and pepper
Curried- 1 t. curry powder and 1 t greek seasoning
Top with 2 chicken breasts raw sliced into small pieces. Simmer for 25 min or until tender and liquid absorbed.
I added some pepper I think too, it was good and fed not only us (6 people), but also my 2 nieces and my sisters fiance with a little bit of leftovers. It made alot of rice.
If you haven't figured it out, my cast iron pan is pretty big! I have to use a baking sheet for the lid!
