Use your Favorite Rice! Mine is Jasmine rice (but any rice will do the trick).

For rice portion of this dish:

Saute in a Pan

  • 2 T. Butter
  • one whole green pepper chopped and deseeded
  • one white or yellow onion

Just before burning, quickly add

  • 2 C. Rice (I make more for leftovers)
  • Add one box (32 ozs.) of Organic Chicken Broth
  • 1 T. Chicken base or 1 cube of Chicken Bouillon

Bring to boil, then, reduce to simmer and cover, cook for 40 minutes (until tender).

For the chicken portion of this dish, saute in another pan;

  • 1 T. Butter
  • 2 T. Oil
  • 1-2 Onions
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced

ADD as many chicken breasts as you need for your family (raw or frozen) – Cook thoughly!  Cut chicken into 1-2 inch pieces.

Then add;

  • 2-4 T. of Pepper Jam or Raspberry or Blackberry Habanero Jam
  • Toss until completely covered.
  • Take off heat and place the chicken with the rice.


Quick & Easy Chili

Feeds 2-3 ppl.

  • ½ onion diced & sauted in olive oil
  • ½ clove of garlic minced
  • 16 oz can of black beans
  • 16 oz can kidney beans
  • 16 oz can tomato cause
  • 1 C salsa (we use mild)
  • 2 T chili powder 1 tsp. salt (we use sea salt) sometimes we add a little already cooked chicken chopped up into bite sized pieces.

Bring to a boil, and then its ready to serve. Should only take 15 minutes to make.

I like it thick, but if you want it a little thinner add one cup of chicken stock.

Serve and enjoy!
