Four Foods on Friday #112

From Val's Kitchen
The question for this week’s FFonF is What can you make with meat or poultry, rice, cheese and a vegetable?

A few years ago, I entered a contest, hosted by Val, and won a wonderful cookbook. The cookbook is called, Campbell’s 3 books in one and has wonderful, easy recipes. This cookbook is all about fuss-free preparation and easy clean-up. One of my favorite recipes is in the Casseroles and One-Dish Meals book section. After cleaning hot tub covers and lawn furniture, I needed this recipe last night! It has everything to fit Val’s FFonF for this week except the cheese so, let me just say, I’d lay some slices of yummy cheddar cheese beside a serving of:

JOLLOF CHICKEN & RICE

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 1/2 to 3 1/2 pound broiler-fryer chicken, cut up
1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
1 can (10 1/2 oz) Campbell’s Condensed Chicken Broth
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Few saffron threads or 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh spinach leaves

1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until it’s well browned on all sides. Remove the chicken.

2. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender. Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes.

3. Stir the broth, water, red pepper, saffron and rice into the skillet. Heat to a boil. Return the chicken to skillet and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

4. Stir in the spinach. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Makes 4 servings

      I’m going to have to try this! Sounds so good with the fresh spinach in it.

      Or maybe even sprinkle the cheddar over the top?
      Thanks for playing!
