Ingredients: ground chicken, rice, onion, salt, garlic, bell pepper, paprika

Today’s culinary creation is dirty rice. I’ve always been a fan of Popeye chicken’s dirty rice and so today was an attempt to imitate that side. Instead of using ground beef however, ground chicken was used to make it a healthier version.

To make the rice, combine the onions, salt, garlic, red & green bell pepper, paprika, the ground chicken and rice, stir 1 1/2 cups water, cover & simmer until water is absorbed and rice is tender. The result is homemade dirty rice and a taste of New Orleans right at your home!
You can then pair with your favorite meat. I paired it with rotisserie chicken & added some roasted potatoes!
