Left Over Chicken and Rice

Leftover chicken & riceIn order to make life more sane I like to always cook some extra meat for dinner so that I have leftovers for lunches. The problem is that sometimes the fridge gets full of leftovers. Rather than eating the same thing for dinner (heaven forbid :)) or giving the leftovers to the dog (better than throwing them out), I like to dress the leftovers up a bit. I used leftover BBQ chicken thighs for this version but you could use add just about any leftover savoury meat to this rice.

The Recipe: Left Over Chicken and Rice

1 cup of brown rice
1 onion diced
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbsp of turmeric
1 tbsp of paprika
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp sea salt
2 cups of chicken stock
left over chicken (I used 2 large chicken thighs)
1/4 cup of roughly chopped salted pistachios

Heat a medium sauce pan to medium high heat and add the butter and onions. Saute the onions for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, add the garlic and continue stirring for another 2 minutes. Add the paprika and turmeric and stir for another minute. Add the rice and cook for another minute stirring. Add salt, chicken stock and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 35 minutes. Roughly chop the leftover chicken in 1/2 inch pieces and add to the rice. Cover and continue cooking until rice is done (liquid has all been absorbed). Plate and top with the pistachios. Enjoy!

Use the 3-D printer only as meant by the producer, together with all safeguards. For example, contemplate putting it in a working fume hood in a office setting or in a well-ventilated storage in a house setting. Consider opening windows or doors to let contemporary air into the room when a 3-D printer is in operation. Alternatively, think about installing vented Warm Winter Mist Humidifiers exhaust, similar to a snorkel fume hood. Consider buying a printer that has a built-in filtration system able to removing each small particles and gases.
