Chicken and (Southern Red) Rice
I'm kicking off the Thanksgiving season with one of my favorite one pot meals – Chicken and (Red) Rice! It's another one of those meals that's so easy to make yet it tastes like you worked all day to get dinner on the table. Our new Southern Red Rice complements the chicken perfectly – it adds an extra kick of flavor without being overwhelming or heavy. I love how this recipe combines Latin flavors with Southern style cooking to create a dish that tastes like comfort food meets Latin cuisine. The result is a twist on classic comfort food that tastes amazing alongside turkey or other holiday fare.
Chilau Cast Iron Smothered Salmon Steaks
Cast iron seared and smothered salmon steaks will make you question if you need any other source of protein. The flavor is simply incredible with onion, peppers and sauce over rice. It's super quick to prepare and only takes a couple ingredients. The perfect week night meal or even for special occasions.
Smothered Chicken with Chilau Gumbo
Smothered Chicken with Chilau Gumbo. This was one of those quick meals that I created on the spot. I had limited ingredients but enough to create some of the best chicken I’ve ever tasted. I had two left over bottles of Gumbo sitting in the fridge so I used those as the base flavor. I needed something low carb, so I served it over cauliflower rice. I finally have my cast iron pan seasoned just right and I’ve been using it more often!
Garlic Pepper Shrimp with Three Cheese Tortellini and Andouille Sausage
This recipe came about as a result of canvasing my pantry and fridge for dinner possibilities. I just so happened to have some jumbo shrimp and andouille sausage. The decision was then to decided whether to serve it over rice or pasta. Fresh three cheese tortellini was a different spin I decided to use. This recipe will also be excellent using a creamy base similar to our Shrimp and Grits recipe.
