Chicken rice recipes


  • 3 pounds rotisserie chicken (pre-cooked from local supermarket)
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce, I used Tabasco
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 1/4 cups natural peanut butter
  • Rice, cooked according to directions

You can roast or stew your own chicken but using a rotisserie chicken from your local supermarket will save time.

  1. Debone chicken.
  2. Bring to a boil 2 quarts broth, salt, red pepper flakes, hot sauce, onion, garlic and tomato paste.  Simmer until onions are tender, about 1/2 hour.
  3. Add peanut butter to the hot broth and stir until completely mixed.
  4. Add chicken, cover and simmer for one hour.
  5. Serve over cooked rice with chopped tomatoes, onions, and pineapple (optional)

  2. Give it a try! Don’t be swayed by the addition of the peanut butter – this stew is very tasty! And starting with a rotisserie chicken sure makes this an easy dish to prepare.
