Remember about a month ago when I put my leftover turkey in bags and put them in the freezer?
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green sweet pepper
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 14 ½ ounce can of chopped tomatoes
1 ½ cups chicken broth
2/3 cup long grain rice
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (I add chopped garlic with the onions, peppers and celery and skip this ingredient)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 to ½ bottled hot pepper sauce, or ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (I prefer cayenne)
1 bay leaf
2 cups cubed, cooked chicken
1. In a large skillet cook celery, onion and sweet pepper in oil till vegetables are tender but not brown.
2. Stir in undrained tomatoes, chicken broth, uncooked rice, basil, garlic powder, pepper, hot pepper sauce, and bay leaf. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes or till rice is tender. Stir in chicken or turkey; heat through. Discard bay leaf. Makes 4 servings.
