This flavoured rice cooking...takes the hassle out of preparing 'gravy' for the rice... my taste bud has changed quite tremendously over the years... coupled with finding an easier way to cook (I rephrase... lazy cooking but still edible!!!)
- 3 chicken breast - marinate wih cajun spice
- 2 cup of long grain rice
- 2 oranges - 2 tablespoon of orange rind and juiced (1 cup)
- 1 1/2 cup of chicken stock or water
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 brown onion - chopped
- 2 garlic - crushed
- Salt and pepper
Rub the cajun spice on the chicken.. and marinate for at least 1 hr in the fridge. Marinate overnight will enhance the flavour...Heat up a skillet or frying pan. Spray oil onto the chicken. Cook until it is golden brown on both sides. Place the chicken on a plate and cover with aluminium foil. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
Note: As the chicken breast is quite thick...make sure to score the chicken so that the 'inside' will be cooked too.
