My sweet mom often made Chicken and Yellow Rice like this when we were living in Tampa. Except she made it in a pressure cooker. It is SO GOOD. And it's still one of my all-time favorite frugal dinners to this day!
* * *
1 whole chicken
Chicken bouillon cube (for extra flavoring)
1 package of seasoned Yellow Rice (large or small, depending on how many servings you need)
Optional: Add cooked green peas (frozen or canned) after mixing rice and chicken together.
Clean chicken and remove giblets. Place cleaned chicken into a large pot of water (with a chicken bouillon cube if desired), and boil until done. Remove skin and bones from the cooked chicken, and tear or cut meat into bite-sized pieces.
Prepare yellow rice as per instructions on the package. Add cut up chicken pieces to the cooked rice, and cooked green peas of desired. Serve warm.
Feeding a crowd? Double the yellow rice to stretch this recipe!

Reader's Tip: I also make this using sausage instead of chicken and adding some finely diced red and green peppers for taste and color. Yummy! Keep up the good work, Sue
Thanks Sue, we will try this. Sounds delicious! :o)
