Mary Ann Chicken

My cousin, Mary Ann, makes this recipe. (Hence the creative name.)  Mike thinks it is too lemon-y, so I don’t cook it exactly as you’re about to see it.

1 T olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup white rice

1 tsp grd cumin

1/2 tsp black pepper

16 oz can garbanzo beans (drained & rinsed)

2 cups chicken broth

2 cups shredded, cooked chicken

1/2 cup lemon juice

1 T chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

In a medium saucepan heat oil over medium high heat. Add garlic, rice, cumin, and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until garlic is tender and rice is golden brown (about 4 minutes). Stir in garbanzo beans and broth. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to low, cover and cook until rice is tender (about 15 minutes). Fluff with fork.

In a large bowl combine chicken, lemon juice, salt, cilantro and cayenne pepper. Mix well. Add rice mixture to chicken mixture and combine.
