Sazon Rice


You guys! Look who it is again! Really trying to keep up with my posts lately. Today I am sharing another favorite of mine as you can obviously tell I LOVE rice. So when I am not making white rice, jollof rice, fried rice, yellow rice or angwamu, this is the rice I make for my household. It is very SIMPLE yet so delicious and adds a little flavor to our plain rice. This rice can be served with goat meat stew, corned beef stew,curry goat and whatever sauce you have available.
And the best part about this is that you can COOK it in your rice cooker.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 sachets of sazon seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 small onion
Method: 
  1. Chop the onions into small chunks
  2. Add the water to the rice, add in the chopped onions and the salt
  3. Add in the sazon seasoning and stir in until all the rice and onions are coated with the seasoning
  4. Add in the butter and cook the rice until well done.

I like to stir my rice one time before letting it completely it cook(I used the rice cooker here)

Served with stew, beef stir fry, fried turkey tail and salad

Chicken Sauce


Hi my fellow foodies, yes I am trying to get back to actively blogging. It will take sometime but I will get the hang of this blogging and "vlogging" lifestyle. Today I will like to share with you all another simple sauce. You should already know how I feel about simple dishes.

Video here -->Chicken Sauce

Ingredients: 

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch/flour(depending on how thick you want your sauce)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 small onion 
  • 1 small green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil 
  • 1 small sachet of onga chicken spice(or knorr cubes, onga cubes, any spices you use to make your food tasty)


Method: 

  1. Wash and cut chicken into small chunks/pieces
  2. Season with spices and set aside 
  3. Cut vegetables in big chunks and also set aside
  4. In a small sauce pan, add the oil and fry the chicken until well done
  5. Add about half cup of water to the cornstarch/flour and add to the fried chicken and stir occasionally until sauce thickens up, add in your seasoning or spices to taste to your preference 
  6. Add in your vegetables, allow to simmer for a bit and serve with your main dish

**For those of you wondering why my sauce looks brown in the end, I did add a little bit of oyster sauce for color difference and flavor, but it is optional of course**
Refer to video for the step by step on this. Enjoy
