Polynesian bowl

>> Thursday, January 28, 2010

The sky opened up at around 4 pm and flooded the streets with water. I was planning on stopping in the grocery store on my way home from work but with the inclement weather, I decided to pass and figure out a meal from what I had in the house.  A simple dish bringing together rice, chicken and plums created a beautiful meal which I creatively named a Polynesian bowl.

I grabbed from the fridge and pantry:
Plain white rice, 1 cup
Chicken breast, cut into small pieces
Plums, cut into large pieces
Raspberries, one handful
Cilantro, one handful, chopped
Scallions, one bunch, thinly sliced
Odobo peppers (2)
Soy sauce
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

In a large skillet, cook the chicken in a spot of olive oil with salt, pepper and a splash of soy sauce. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to package directions.

In a medium skillet, cook the cilantro, scallions, plums, raspberries and odobo peppers together until the flavors meld and add in the cooked chicken. 

Serve the plum chicken topping over a bed of rice and enjoy!
