8. Salad and chicken and yellow rice from scratch

I've been eating chicken and yellow rice all my life and other than the times I had it at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City, I made it from Vigo brand kits. This time I wanted to make from scratch. While often the yellow rice is colored and flavored with saffron, I made it with turmeric today and noticed little difference in flavor. I sort of made my own recipe based on several from the internet and a couple from my cookbooks.

About 3 pounds of chicken (I used 2 huge boneless breasts and three thighs (bone in but I removed the skin)
powdered turmeric and cumin
olive oil
2 small yellow onions, diced
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1 cup brown rice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup frozen peas
1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes, drained

Cut chicken into desired pieces, sprinkle with turmeric and cumin. Let marinate in refrigerator for an hour.
Heat olive oil in large pan, add onions and cook until soft; add garlic and cook for about a minute.
Add bell pepper and cook until soft.
Stir in rice and spices, stir to blend.
Add chicken broth, stir, and bring to a boil. Place chicken pieces into pan, return to boil. After it comes to a boil again, reduce temperature to a simmer.
Cook for 30 minutes. Add peas and drained diced tomatoes. Turn over chicken pieces, stirring the rice mixture.
Cook for another 30 minutes.
Serve with black beans and salad.

NOTE: As you can see, I do not add salt as I cook. If you prefer and your health allows, add salt to taste.
