Stove top Pilau AND giveaway

Southern Living has another new cookbook coming out. YES! and I have it! It is due for release on March 4th. Comfort Food Made Easy

WHO WANTS TO WIN???? A copy of the cookbook AND a LouAna coconut oil!**

This one is Comfort Food Made Easy. Well, when I first received it, I thought, oh no, comfort food is delicious but not healthy. I was pleasantly surprised to drool  gaze through this book and see there were some wonderful sounding recipes that would not kill my healthy eating. Also, there were a number of them I knew I could alter just a tad to suit my needs.



This recipe is one of them. It was "oven baked pilau". I did mine on the stove top in my awesome Cuisinart pan. My family knows, when that pot is on the stove, something fabulous is coming out of it for supper.

This recipe did not fail and as we like to say "it's a keeper."

If you're not familiar, pilau is a rice dish, cooked with broth,spices and a meat normally chicken.

Stove Top Pilau
2 large chicken breast, diced
3 beef smoked sausage, Louisiana style
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp celery seed
2 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 tsp red pepper flake
1 tsp white ground pepper
1/2 tsp fresh black cracked pepper
3 cups broth, vegetable or water
4 cups chopped collards
1 medium yellow onion diced
3 carrots, sliced
1 cup uncooked rice, Jasmin or basmati

In a dutch oven or a large sauce pan, place oil and sausage. Cook and remove. Toss in your chicken, diced up, and cook until the outside is no longer pink. Now add your seasonings, sausage and stir well. Next add in your water, broth,rice and vegetables. Stir well, cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes depending on how soft you want your vegetables AND to make sure the rice is done.

ENJOY
