Ingredients

  • 5 Cups homemade chicken broth
  • 1 10 oz pkg Vigo Yellow Rice
  • 2 Cups Pulled/chopped chicken pieces
  • 1 - 1.5 Cup frozen peas

Instructions

  1. Put 5 cups homemade chicken broth in a large pot and bring to a boil.

  2. Following the instructions on the Vigo rice bag - dump the rice in the boiling broth and stir for 1 minute on boil.

  3. Lower heat to simmer.  Dump in the chicken pieces and stir.  Cover and simmer for 20 - 25 minutes.

  4. Dump the frozen peas on the top, cover and cook for another 10 - 15 minutes.

Recipe Notes

I usually cook initially for 25 minutes and another 10 minutes after I've added peas.

Serve with a drop or two of hot sauce if you desire. (Not my deal).
