Orez cu pui si legume + astenie de primavara (Rice with Chicken and Vegetables + spring fatigue)


Please scroll down for English version

          De cand am venit in Toronto nu mai prea stiu ce e aia primavara, deoarece aici iarna e mai lunga ca in Romania, iar trecerea de la iarna la vara se face rapid de obicei, cu diferente foarte mari de temperatura, cel putin asta am observat eu in cele 2 primaveri petrecute deja aici; chiar daca frumosul anotimp ne insoteste cu prezenta foarte scurt daca nu deloc, organismul meu resimte o astenie grozava ca in fiecare an, de nu am chef nici sa gatesc si de aceea nu am activitate in ultimul timp pe blog...daca aveti sugestii pentru alungarea asteniei please let me asa ma simt zilele astea:


        M-am gandit sa postez reteta aceasta super rapida cu orez pe care am facut-o cand ma aflam intr-o stare de lene maxima :) e simplu si delicios si merge perfect cu o salata de ridichi si ceapa verde.


      200 g piept de pui fiert (il aveam ramas)
      1 ceapa
      1 ardei
      1 morcov
      250 g orez Arborio (bob mic, bun pt risotto)
      patrunjel verde
      unt pt prajit

Cum se face:

Se curata legumele si se toaca marunt. Puiul se taie bucati mai mari. Orezul se spala si se scurge de apa.

Intr-o tigaie punem untul la topit si prajim ceapa cu ardeiul, adaugam morcovul si punem apa, lasam sa fiarba 5 minute.

Adaugam orezul spalat, condimentam cu sare si lasam sa fiarba la foc mic pana orezul e moale, amestecand din cand in cand sa nu se prinda (adaugati cate putina apa daca e nevoie).

Intr-o tigaie separata prajim bucatile de pui condimentate cu sare si piper.

Cand orezul e aproape fiert, adaugam puiul prajit, avand grija sa amestecam.

Condimentam cu sare, piper si presaram verdeata tocata. Servim cu salata de cruditati sau muraturi dupa preferinta. Puiul prajit ii da o aroma mai buna decat daca am face pilaf de orez cu pui proaspat.

Mai de aproape...

Si o poza cu salata minunata si super gustoasa! Bon appetit si va doresc multa energie!!!

       I can't remember what spring means since I came to Toronto, because here winter lasts longer than in Romania, and passing from winter to summer is so fast, with huge temperature differences, at least that's what I observed in the last 2 springs that I spent here; even though the beautiful season is so short if not absent, my body experiences a very intense spring fatigue like every year, that I'm not in the mood to cook or anything else for that matter, that's why I don't have too much blog activity lately...if you have any suggestions to make this spring fatigue go away, please let me know...this is how I feel lately:
  Finding myself in a terrible laziness, I thought I should make this super fast rice recipe. It's simple, delicious and goes perfectly with a radish and green onion fresh salad :)


      200 g cooked chicken breast

      1 onion
      1 pepper
      1 carrot
      250 g Arborio rice
      fresh parsley leaves
      butter for frying

How it's made:

We peel and chop the vegetables. We cut the chicken in bigger pieces. We wash the rice and drain the water.
In a pan, we melt the butter and fry the onion with the pepper, we add the chopped carrot and pour water, leaving them to cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
We add the washed rice, we sprinkle salt and we let it cook on low heat until the rice is tender, stirring often, to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan.
Meanwhile in a separate skillet we fry the chicken in a little bit of butter.
When the rice is almost cooked we add the fried chicken and we stir them all together, leaving them to cook until the rice is fully cooked.
We spice the rice and sprinkle fresh chopped parsley leaves.
We serve with a fresh radish salad or pickled vegetables if you like. The chicken tastes better with fried chicken than the rice pilaf with fresh chicken.
 Bon appetit!
