Dinner #2

Wanna make your home smell amazing?
Here's what you need. I halved it because there are only two of us.

  • 2 whole chickens
  • 4 carrots, halved
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 cup long grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 avocados
  • 3 limes halved
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves
Okay here is the deal... take the chicken, carrots, onion, garlic and salt and stick them in a big pot filling it with water. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for an hour. Enjoy smelling the goodness throughout your home. After the hour, take out the chicken and veggies. Shred the chicken and discard the veggies. Put the uncooked rice into the broth we just created for 20 minutes, then add the chicken for 5 minutes. Scoop the avocado into bowls, pour the soup over and top with cilantro and squirt it with lime.

Now, if you don't have time to make your own broth Ive figured out a quicker way. Buy a rotisserie chicken and cook the rice in store bought chicken broth. 20 minute meal!
