Last weekend, we learned how to make chicken stock that can be preserved in the freezer for months and used to flavor your food, soups and sauces. Today, let’s make some boneless chicken rice using the chicken stock to flavor the recipe. I promise this rice recipe is delicious on its own without any extra pickle or pili pili on the side.

500g boneless chicken, cubed
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon rosemary
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons oil

Add the rice and mix well ensuring all flavors are well combined. Add in the stock and bring to a boil.
Once the water is almost completely evaporated, reduce heat to very low and cover with an air tight lid so that the rice can steam and become fluffy. Fluff up the rice and serve immediately with some side lime slices of you wish.
