I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information.

Dairy-Free Chicken and Rice

I had some leftover grilled BBQ chicken drumsticks in the freezer.  I pulled the chicken off and made this tasty meal for my family.  Love, love, love recipes without milk or cream soups -- makes preparations so much easier.   I really liked the flavors of the onion and peppers.  I wouldn't substitute green peppers here.  Yellow and red peppers were the best flavor.

Chicken and Rice
(I found the recipe on yahoo answers, but changed it a little)

1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup yellow bell pepper
1 medium onion diced
1 cup instant rice (I use Minute Rice)
1 cup chicken stock (make your own)
1 Tbsp minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil
Amount of leftover beef, pork or chicken (about a cup)

1. Make instant rice with chicken stock.  Boil stock, add rice, take off heat for 3 minutes.

2. Heat oil in pan. When oil is shimmering add peppers and onion.  Cook until softened about 5 minutes on medium heat.
3. Add garlic for about a minute.
4. Pour in rice and any stock not yet absorbed in rice.
5. Turn heat on low and cook for about 5 minutes.
6. Add meat and season with salt and pepper.  Warm on low for a couple minutes.
