Chipotle Chicken and Rice | Everyday Food with Sarah Carey



The week is off and running again. Do you know what you’re going to make for dinner tonight? Why not try this simple chicken-and-rice stovetop casserole that’s smoky, saucy, and oh, so good? The dish gets its subtle, smoky heat from chipotle chiles (actually smoked jalapenos) in adobo (a vinegary tomato puree with herbs and spices). You can usually find the chiles canned or jarred in the international aisle of your supermarket.

Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
In the video, I’ll show you the trick to browning chicken perfectly, how to make sure you get the deepest flavor from spices, and the way to keep your garnishes fresh. Plus, you’ll get to see how beautiful the finished dish looks. Are you hungry yet? If not, you will be!
