For Love Of Rice
This is our story of how Success® Rice sponsored an excellent meal at our home. We love to cook. Between my husband and me, we are constantly trying out some new recipes or food style and, thankfully, our boys are the adventurous type and will try anything. Recently, after an exhausting camping trip, we wanted something yummy and filling but weren’t excited about spending all-day cooking. What did we decide to make? Easy! Chicken Curry with Success® Jasmine Rice!
The chicken curry is really easy to make and you can put in as many vegies as you want to make the meal even healthier. In our case, we don’t even opt for the high fat of a coconut milk or cream and stick with non-fat milk and make a roux when sautéing the vegies. As for the curry, there are lots of powdered combinations out there and you just need to find the one you love with the level of heat you prefer.
However, the star of this meal is really Success ® Jasmine Rice! I grew up eating rice every day and the idea of a meal without it was unfathomable. As an adult, I still love my rice but I usually make it in our rice maker which can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour to make. Success ® Jasmine Rice boil in bag rice takes ten minutes and the rice is perfectly cooked, buttery, nutty and is perfectly portioned for a family meal! The bag is BPA free and the cleanup is a cinch! It is a must in every pantry and with options like Success® Whole Grain Brown Rice and Success® White Rice, and globally-inspired aromatic varieties of Success® Rice, including fragrant Thai Jasmine or Basmati Rice, you have a rice for every food style you can think of! They even have great recipe ideas for all four styles of rice they offer.
Chicken Curry a la CoupleDumb
3 lbs. Chicken (Frozen chicken breasts-no skin or bones)
4 potatoes (I used Russet but go ahead and pick your favorite)
2 Yellow Squash
Honestly, pick your favorite veggies. Cauliflower, Broccoli, Carrots, Spinach….we have used them all. Be sure to cut them all equal sizes to cook evenly.
½ Yellow Onion (finely chopped)
4 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
1 Stick Butter (I know, you want to keep this healthy. I have found that the butter works better and you will balance this out by using non-fat milk)
1/2 Cup Curry Powder (Your choice. Make it as mild or spicy)
4 tbs Flour
1 Qt. Non-fat milk
2 Tbs Chicken Bullion
Salt to taste
In a large pot, place cut veggies, bullion, salt and frozen chicken and cover with water. Boil as if making broth. May I suggest to go ahead and make this like you were making soup since there is no sense in throwing out perfectly yummy broth. Plus, you can use it for dinner tomorrow. In the meantime, in a large and deep saucepan, place butter, onions and garlic on medium and sauté them until translucent. Place curry powder in the pan and cook it with the onion and garlic. Add the flour and make a roux. When the flour is completely incorporated and cooked out, add the milk (you can omit the flour if you are using coconut milk or cream). Use a whisk to incorporate everything and whisk until it thickens. When the chicken is completely cooked, carefully take each breast and cut it into bite sized pieces. With a skimmer, remove the rest of the veggies from the broth and add it to the curry mixture along with the chicken. Incorporate it completely and simmer for 10 minutes in the curry. Salt to taste. Serve over Success®Jasmine Rice.
We know that most families are too busy to make exotic fare every night. But Success® Rice makes bringing the world to your table easier!
