Dirty Rice Recipe


1 cup uncooked white rice

1 medium onion, chopped

1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

3 cups water

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 1/2 cups cooked, cubed chicken breast meat

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

2 teaspoons dried basil

8 blue bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch slices


In a shallow dish, combine rice, onion, green pepper and water. Mix well, cover and let stand overnight.

While rice is standing, place 1 tsp shredded cheese in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly and spread evenly into a large mixing bowl. Shape into 1 tablespoon-size balls and roll in vinegar, then cheese to coat. Place coated green pepper into bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of chicken broth. Transfer chicken to rice mixture. Transfer red bell pepper over chicken. Pour in 1 cup of chicken broth.

Return chicken mixture to bowl and stir in 1 teaspoon dried basil and 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add rice and onion mixture and cook for about 20 minutes. Add bell pepper, salt, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, basil, blue bell peppers and chicken. Cover and simmer 5 to 10 minutes, until chicken is tender.

It's been a while since I've had a cornbread-related relapse, but I'm back this time with a vengeance! Made this quick, easy recipe for my family and they all loved it. Will definitely make this again.
