Ingredients

2-3 lb
cut up chicken pieces
1
large onion, diced
1-1 1/2 c
long grain rice (uncle ben's)
1 can(s)
tomato paste (6 oz can)
1-2 tsp
cinnamon
1-2 tsp
paparika
dried red crushed peper - to taste
salt & pepper to taste
64 oz
chicken broth (optional)
2 tsp
garlic powder or 1 tbs dried minced garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put chicken in pan and cover with water (or chicken broth if you prefer). Bring to boil, then simmer until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from cooking liquid and add rice( If it looks as though you have too much liquid, remove some and set aside--add to rice if needed later). When rice is cooked, return chicken to pan and toss with cooked rice. Most of the cooking liquid should be absorbed.

Serve with tossed salad.
