You ever look at a recipe and think “I like all of these ingredients, but how are they going to taste together?” That’s how I find most of my recipes on Pinterest. When I found the original, it was intriguing but also sounded like a great comfort food dish.
I’m always looking for meals to add to my rotation. It results in a lot of dinners being duds or just okay, but sometimes I stumble upon a great dish that we don’t mind eating more than once.
I gathered my (main) ingredients: Ground chicken since I don’t eat beef, some homemade chicken stock, some brown rice, tomato sauce, sour cream and frozen peas. Not pictured: 5 lb bag of shredded Mozzarella cheese from Costco.
First I put the rice on to cook (tip: start the rice way earlier. You end up waiting a bit because the rest is so quick). It calls for one cup of cooked rice, but I usually cook a cup of uncooked rice and add however much it turns out to be. It probably changes the consistency a bit, but it’s great either way. Then I browned the ground chicken with some minced garlic.
Once the chicken was browned, I added in everything else in the picture except the sour cream, plus some cheese. Then I popped it in the oven for fifteen minutes because I cooked it in my amazing, oven-safe Cuisinart skillet I got for Christmas.
Go here for the full recipe as I can’t take credit for anything but my substitutions. Bon appetit!
