Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the 1 cup chopped onion; cook about 4 minutes or until tender. Add chicken and garlic; cook about 4 minutes more or until chicken is browned, turning once.

  • Stir in broth, poultry seasoning, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Bring mixture to boiling.

  • Stir in uncooked rice. Reduce heat. Cover and cook about 10 minutes or until rice is almost tender.

  • Stir in black-eyed peas and the 1 tablespoon thyme. Cover and cook about 10 minutes or until heated through and liquid is absorbed. If desired, garnish with additional finely chopped red onion and snipped thyme.


Tip: You can find saffron-flavored yellow rice mix with other rice mixes in your supermarket. Look for a brand (such as Vigo(R) or Carolina(R)) that combines the seasonings and the rice to make it easier to measure out the 3/4 cup needed for this recipe. If the brand you buy comes with a separate seasoning packet (such as Goya(R)), mix the seasonings with the rice in a separate bowl and measure out 3/4 cup.
