So I had a ton of the brown rice from yesterdays project (tell you about that disaster later). Bill grabbed a pack of free-range chicken legs so I was set with the common task of combining the old with the new to make something delicious. Not having much time before shooting off to wait tables at Circa I decided to make one big dish and call it good. So I seasoned with salt and pepper then browned the chicken in a large saucepan. Then, I dumped all the rice on top. Chopped a bunch of herbs, heavy on the rosemary, and tossed those in. Poured a beer, PBR, (any light beer would work, or white wine) over the whole thing, put a lid on it and done.
It cooked for about 45 minutes and the chicken was fall-apart tender and rice infused with moisture and chicken deliciousness. Bill gave me big props on this concoction. Waylon, my “light” eater even ate a big serving of the rice. You’re welcome Bill. I’ll take a foot rub with that glass of wine, my good man.
