Mom & Dad should be sooo proud!
Chicken is easy and not expensive either!.
How about buy fresh chicken breasts no skin or bone!. Wash with cold water for about a minute and put to dry a little on a paper towel on the cutting board!.
Put about one cup of water in a large frying pan and place the fresh chicken breasts in the water!. (Cuts down the calories too) without the oil!.
Turn the heat on low to start cooking!. Put about 1/2 cup of white rice into the pan around the chicken after it has cooked about 10 minutes or so!.
For flavorings there are many!. Try a little salt, pepper and chili powder over the mixture (not too much, just enough to color it a bit) I like about a 1/2 cup of diced onion to this mix!.
Cover the pan with it's cover and cook for about 20 to 30 minutes on low!. You can check to see if the chicken is cooked by putting a fork into the centers and if it tears very easily it is cooked!. Ditto the rice should be soft as well!.
You can add garlic powder (not salt) and at the very last you can add a slices of fresh tomatoe if they like that!. Almost any green vegetable will go good with this meal!. Fresh is always better than canned and will impress your parents better than something from a can!.
You also can turn on the oven while you are cooking your chicken and rice and butter some bread!. Place the bread into a hot oven about 450 degrees and shake some garlic powder and a bit of chilil powder on top!. Be careful not to burn the bread! Watch closely!.
Presto! you have a meal fit for impressed parents!.
You will need:
1/2 chicken breast for ea!. person
1/2 cup of diced onion
1/2 cup white rice
chili powder
garlic powder
1 fresh tomato sliced
1 fresh vegetable (your choice) frozen works well too!.
fresh bread (for your garlic chili bread)
Maybe a little decor for your table!.!.!.napkins, fresh flowers, etc!.
This is easy and tastes great!Www@FoodAQ@Com
