What adds flavor to Chicken & Rice?Page 3 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
The can of soup idea is great. If you really want to spice it up, do it fajita style. Heat up a sauce pan with butter and crushed garlic. Then add red, yellow and green peppers. Saute' them until tender. Bake your chicken regularly and add to pepper mix. U can even add mushroom in the sauce pan. I hope it helps.

For my rice, I'll toast the grains with a little onion and garlic and then cook it in chicken broth. I also throw in a splash of real lemon juice from half a lemon. Yum! As for chicken, marinading works great.

Before cooking the rice wash it thoroughly in a sieve under a running tap until the water runs clear(shaking frequentlya(approx 2 mins)), then in a hot pan that youre going to cook the rice in, fry the rice(raw) until it turns translucent, while the rice is still in the pot and the flame up high add sufficient chicken stock and then cook for half the thime you would normally as pre frying has alresdy done the work foe you, Drain pour over boiling water, fluff with a fork and youre ready to serve..... Enjoy......................Dai..

I usually add campbel's cream of chickn soup and a little water. The amount of water depends upon how long it is going to cook. Better to put in too little, you can always add more. After that, then I might add another campbel's soup can of chili pablemo to give it a little kick. You might even want to add some mild peppers.

Good luck.

The only way to add flavor to rice is salt. Works for me.

One little package of dry ranch dressing mix in the rice or sprinkled on the chicken as it's baking, tastes great!

Rice usually takes on the flavor you cook it in. If you want something really simple try cooking rice in orange juice. Gives it a tangy flavor without over powering the chicken.

missed your post flthymcnsty . Your right about the frozen vegies. I like to cook the frozen vegies in a pan with olive oil then add them to the rice. Spice as needed.

I found that my sticky sweet maple sauce does the trick.

In a small frying pan heat on a low temp
add 1tsp of butter so get the pan nice and slick
next add aprox. about a half cup of milk
add in about 2 tbsp of maple syrup (the fake aunt jemima stuff works also but prefer the real stuff when it is in season)
finally add 1tbsp of brown sugar

melt them all together constantly stirring at a low temp and then serve over the rice and chicken.

Hope you people enjoy this sauce you can use it for nearly any concoction of foods out there.

Stewed tomatoes, with chopped celery, green pepper, a little salt and pepper and melted butter. You can add chopped pineapple, sliced carrots, peas and a little brown sugar for variety. Yummy.

Saffron, recaito, sofrito all add great flavor to anything involving rice or chicken or both.

my favorites are onion, celery or parsely with chicken.
When i really want to mix it up I will try any dip mix.
One of my most recent experiments was with sundried tomatoe seasoning. Love it! Cut up a few fresh grape tomatoes and it will give it texture and colour.

If all you want to add is flavor, then get yourself some Saffron.

End of story. You didn't ask for ingredients, just flavor. These people don't listen very well.

*wink*

Enjoy

BTW, the guy with the suggestion to use a can of cream of whatever soup, that's not only genius, it's a staple in my cooking routine, good job sir!

Oh, I made that a week or so ago. Even had good sausage from Louisiana....! I ate it for lunch for several days, it's better the second day to me, like beef stews are.
Gumbo is wonderful... But, I hate standing at the stove stirring the roux for an hour.

So, buckethead, do you use okra and or file' in yours? I agree, Tony's, it's good on everything, except chocolate cake!

or if your looking for simple, chicken bouillon cubes have a lot more flavor then broth does, I always toss one in when anything calls for broth alone.

Again... flavor profiles...

Open up your spice rack and start smelling! Learn what goes good!

Rice will take on all kinds of flavor. Same with chix. Chicken loves Rosemary and Sage. Try brining the chix!
Rice... add saffron (not much!) for flavor and a beautiful yellow color. Onion? Shallot? Garlic?

All of the post are great

Use whatever the dish you are making with any of the seasonings listed in all the postings with drippings from any meat. So you are not using meat..

Safferon threads is great with rice. Paella

For Spanish - Cuban Dishes cumin- cilantros- little chili powder-

water from Cabbage
