Lime Chicken Pilaf
Lime Chicken Pilaf- a colorful dish that can be served with chicken, or even by itself. The piquant flavors blend into the rice perfectly. A delicious and delightful dish, meant for one and all! you can increase or decrease the chillies according to your taste. happy cooking!
Mix olive oil, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Toss chicken in marinade, cover and refrigerate for half an hour. if you've got the time then marinating overnight is also a good idea.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook chicken and set aside. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and cook garlic and onion until translucent. Stir in jalapeno, chopped tomatoes, salt, and turmeric; cook for 2 minutes to soften tomato. Stir in the rice, mixing thoroughly. Stir in half of the lime juice, bay leaves, chicken stock, water, and cooked chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, then cover and simmer 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until the rice has cooked. Remove from heat, discard the bay leaves; stir in the remaining lime juice and cilantro.
