Brazilian Chicken and Rice Recipe

Updated on March 8, 2013

Easy 30 Minute Dinner

This delicious dinner is easy and filling. Even without the meat, the rest of the recipe makes a great side dish.


4 Tbs vegetable oil

1 yellow onion, finely chopped

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 bay leaf

3 cups white rice

4 cups hot water

1 can tomatoes, drained and chopped

1/2 tsp salt

6 chicken drumsticks

2 sliced hard boiled eggs

4 quart pot

1. Heat oil on medium-high and cook the onion and garlic until golden.

2. Add rice and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add the bay leaf, tomatoes and salt. Bring to a boil, continuing to stir until almost all the water is evaporated, about 5 minutes.

4. Add chicken, stirring drumsticks into the rice.

5. Cover the pot and reduce temperature to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is cooked.

Serve hot on a platter. Garnish with the hard boiled egg slices. Wonderful with focaccia bread.
