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.

How to Make Rice Pilaf with Shrimp or Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat Olive Oil in a heavy bottom skillet and add onions. Saute until golden and add minced garlic. Stir for a minute or two.
  • 2Add 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.
  • 3Add 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.
  • 4Note: 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.
