Mealthy Tip

This recipe calls for white pepper rather than the black pepper that is used more frequently in dishes. They come from the same fruit, but with white pepper, the dark outer skin is removed by soaking before the seed is dried. The result is that white pepper is a bit spicier and fruitier than black pepper. It has an earthy flavor that is slightly smoky.

Very good chicken and rice recipe! I could smell the aroma before it finished cooking, so delicious. The rice was very flavorful and the perfect texture. I will definitely make this again.

This recipe reminds me of the chicken and rice my mom made for us as kids. So good! I love how tender the chicken is, it literally falls off the bone. I used boneless thighs, and I'm sure it's equally as good with chicken breasts. This is definitely my new go-to chicken and rice recipe.

This is now my go to chicken and rice recipe! Such a quick and easy weeknight meal that my wife and kids love! The seasonings have a Cajun-like flavor but it's not spicy. I shredded the chicken and mixed it in with the rice. Perfection!

Comfort food at its best! Great balance of spices in the rice and on the chicken. Love cooking the rice with the chicken, too. Never underrate a recipe that allows you such an easy post-dinner cleanup. Will get heavy use on nights we have baseball practice! Oh, you probably could use either all thighs or breasts, but I found that the mixture gave a nice level of fattiness/moisture to the dish. Tinker as you will!

My family really liked this. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I didn't have shallots so I used onions and substituted 1/4 cup wine and 1 cup water for the chicken stock. Turned out perfectly.

Absolutely delicious! My hubby and I loved it! Just enough spice without it overwhelming the dish. Chicken was so tender and rice was perfectly cooked. Wish I could give the recipe 10 stars!

Aaaaamazing!!! Def will be a recipe I will make often. I used a whole chicken that was pre cut up about 5.5lbs worth. I followed all other ingredients and directions and it was perfect. I used jasmine rice and it came out so flavorful.

I haven’t tried it yet and it looks totally delicious… But I’m confused. The name says this is shredded chicken. When in the process of cooking everything do you shred the chicken? Is it after the rice is cooked? Or is it after the chicken is browned? There’s nothing in the recipe saying anything about shredding the chicken…
