Baked Rice with Chicken and Kielbasa
Why I Love This Recipe
Trying to put together lighter, family friendly recipes that even my pickiest eater will like, I came up with this. It's really good... and very low fat!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/2 C jasmine rice, uncooked
3 1/4 C chicken broth, fat free
1 tsp thyme
pinch of saffron, crushed
1 pound chicken breast, skinless
14 oz turkey kielbasa, extra lean
1 leek, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 C frozen peas
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 400F.
Heat chicken broth, thyme and saffron until very hot.
Cut chicken and kielbasa into bite-sized pieces and put in large casserole dish. Add sliced leeks, minced garlic, peas and uncooked rice.
Toss until well mixed.
Pour hot broth over mixture.
Bake uncovered, 45 minutes, or until rice is tender and broth is absorbed.
This makes 8 hearty one cup servings.
