Creamy Chicken Rice Pilaf

The rest of the cream, and some of that chicken too from Half a Chicken Baked with Cream..

I added a little sour cream to give it a punch.

Works wonders!



This makes a lot, like 4 or 6 servings.


  • splash of oil
  • chopped veggies- 1/2 bell pepper, 1 medium shallot, 1/2 cup mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped cooked left over chicken
  • 1 cup of rice
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 2 cups of chicken stock (or vegetable stock or water)
  • 2 tbsp sour cream, more to top
  • optional soy sauce
  • some arugula to serve

Heat up the oil in a medium hot pot and sweat out the veggies for a few minutes. Season well. Fold in the chicken and rice and cook for a few more minutes. Stir in the half and half, stock, and sour cream and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes, until the liquid is cooked off and the rice is tender.

Serve on a bed of arugula, with a dollop of sour cream, some fresh cracked pepper, and a drizzle of soy sauce – or you could just salt it, but this works so well..

I have been eating the leftovers of this for days. It seems to get better by the day.
