It’s been a while since I did a leftover rice recipe. As most of you know by now, I enjoy working with leftover rice. This time round I had leftover poached chicken breasts from my quesadilla recipe. This recipe is pretty simple and you can easy subtitute the chicken with any meat or vegetable you have leftover.
3 cups pre cooked rice
1 cup leftover chicken, shredded
1 cup sultanas, soaked in water
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
3 spring onions, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
a dash of soy sauce
1 tablespoon paprika
a pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
On a heated skillet add the vegetable oil and fry the spring onions.
Once cooked down, add the bell peppers.
Season with the salt and paprika.
Add the chicken shreds.
Stir then add the rice. Since the rice and chicken are already cooked you just need to get them heated.
Finally drain the water and pour over the sultanas.
Sprinkle over a few drops of soy sauce and stir.
Serve and enjoy.
