Growing up, rice was a staple in our house. It was served at almost every dinner meal I can remember. Only on weekends did we have meals that did not include rice. So, my mom had to get creative with her cooking. One day she started making turmeric rice with chicken and corn. I do not know the origins of the recipe, but I have since adopted it in my own kitchen and make it for family and dinner guests alike.
To make it all you need is one pot, 30 minutes of cooking time and a handful of ingredients;
- 1 cup of rice
- 1 can of corn
- 1 small onion; diced
- 1 cup of homemade chicken broth
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons turmeric
Enjoy with plain yogurt on the side, or on top.
Now, wasn't that easy!
cook's note: to make it more wholesome, you can shred cooked chicken and add it to the rice once it has finished cooking.
