Rich & Creamy Chicken & Rice

This is one of my faaaaavorite dishes. It is a bowl of creamy deliciousness and it’s pretty quick and simple to make. It is a recipe my Memaw has made forever and can be tweaked to your liking.


•1 chicken breast per person

•1 package of yellow rice with saffron

•1 red bell pepper

•1 yellow bell pepper

•1 orange bell pepper

•1/2 yellow onion

•1/2-3/4 pint heavy whipping cream

1.) Saute your onion and bell peppers in a generous amount of butter. While those are sauteing,  cook your rice according to package directions.

2.) Season chicken to your liking then cook in the butter with your onion and bell peppers.

3.) Add in 1/2-3/4 pint of heavy whipping cream. You want the cream to at least cover all ingredients in your pan. Heat but do NOT let the whipping cream come to boil.

4.) Once heated, pour over your rice and VOILA! Easy peasy but delicious dinner is served!

Now, in Step 1, you can add in whatever you like- mushrooms, broccoli, etc. I like to keep mine simple but that’s my prerogative.

You can swap out the chicken for shrimp. It is sooo good with shrimp!

You could also use whatever rice you want, however, yellow rice with saffron gives the BEST flavor to the dish. Enjoy!
