RE-POST FROM NOVEMBER: My 15 Minutes Rotisserie Chicken “Asopao” Hungry Anyone?
Dear friends, listen carefully, sometimes we all have to “cheat.” Whoever invented Rotisserie did it to rescue all the working families out there who love to eat healthy; however, don’t have much time to cook a meal at home. Well, I have good news for you. Rotisserie Chicken is here to stay! Let’s cheat as much as we want.
Approximate Prep and Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Approximate Cost: $8.40 or $2.80 per serving
1 Rotisserie Chicken breast and 2 chicken drums ($1.75)
1 onion (.50)
2 ½ stalks of celery (.30)
1 large Idaho potato, 1 red potato diced ($1.00)
4 dried shiitake mushrooms ($.85)
2 cups Chicken stock ($1.10)
1 cup of cooked rice (.50)
1 tbsp. Angie’s Dried Seasonings (.15)
1 tbsp. Angie’s basting Oil (.70)
1 small jar of red pimento peppers ($1.45)
Scallions to garnish (.10)
Clean and chop the onion, celery, potato and sauté in 1 tbsp. of basting oil until golden.
Add the cut chicken breast and drums, stir.
Add the chicken stock, dried seasoning and mushrooms, bring to a boil.
Add the pimento peppers, the cooked rice, cover, reduce the heat to med low, cook for 5 minutes.
HACK: “Asopao” is pretty much a thick soup that has cooked rice instead of noodles. I love to break the rules and add potatoes, mushrooms and whatever I have available at the time. I also like my “Asopao” smooth with lots of broth. If you prefer yours thicker, simply cook it in low a bit longer, about 10 minutes, until the broth evaporates and the flavors concentrate even more.
