This can be made as a side dish by itself or as a main dish by adding the shrimp or chicken. It's delicious either way.

Ingredients

2 or 3 Tbsp
olive oil
1 c
onion
1 or 2 clove
garlic
1 c
rice
1 tsp
salt
1/4 c
dry sherry or white wine
2 c
chicken broth, heated
1 c
small frozen green peas, partially thawed
1 lb
raw shrimp or equivalent amount of cooked chicken

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat Olive Oil in a heavy bottom skillet and add onions. Saute until golden and add minced garlic. Stir for a minute or two.
2
Add rice and salt and stir until rice is golden. Add sherry and stir until liquid is absorbed. Then add the hot chicken broth, stir and bring to a boil. Cover and turn the heat to simmer and cook for about 10 or 15 minutes.
3
Add the peas, raw shrimp or cooked chicken at this point and cook for another 5 - 10 minutes (check to see if liquid is absorbed and shrimp are opaque.) If liquid isn't absorbed, continue cooking for another few minutes, but watch it - you don't want it dry, just moist. Check for seasonings and add more salt and pepper if needed.
4
Note: If using raw chicken, cube chicken and saute in a little Olive Oil until golden, but don't overcook. Add chicken when you add the peas, before all liquid is absorbed.
