How to Make Chicken Avalanche Party
- Prepare rice according to back of bag or box. I also add the optional 2 tbls of butter to the water. I said to use a cup of uncooked rice above but if you are feeding an army then I would make more. You also do not have to use Jasmine rice but I enjoy the texture for this dish. My store brand (Kroger)Jasmine rice takes nine minutes but I usually let it go about 8min so I don't over-cook. Cleaning a pot that had over cooked rice is no fun.
- While the rice is cooking, heat the frozen chicken in a skillet till it is thawed through. Keep moving the chicken around and flipping, otherwise it, too, will stick to the bottom of your pan.
- Once the chicken is heated through, transfer to a plate of cutting board and cut into bite size pieces and set aside. (Because I hate doing dishes, I transfer the chicken to a plate and cut it on the plate. Later I use this as my dinner plate...one less dish to clean...)
- In the same skillet you used for the chicken (do you see a theme?), pour in your frozen vegetables. Add a few shakes of the garlic powder (I tend to sprinkle the powder in a circle around the pan until I feel I have added enough. I guess this would be add garlic powder to taste). Stir these on a medium to high heat to thaw. When they are close to being thawed, add that plate of chopped chicken back to the skillet to heat back up. I mentioned the three veggies above because I usually always have those on hand but you can add whatever frozen or canned veggies you want. I prefer the taste of frozen over canned. The one veggie that makes it a party though is the pepper and onion mix. It really creates the flavor.
- By now your rice should be done and resting on a cool surface with its lid off. Combine the rice and veggie/chicken mix in a big bowl. (I use glass to prevent melting a plastic bowl)
- Serve with crescent rolls, crusty french bread, or biscuits. Can pair with a salad, too, if you're going for extra credit on the vegetables.
