What I ate: Spanish Chicken and Rice

Photo from WW.

Yesterday the Huz and I had a trusty old WW meal for dinner. And it was delicious if I do say so myself. Here are the ingredients (serves 4 so I halved everything except for the canned tomatoes, peas and turmeric):

1 medium garlic clove(s), crushed
2 medium onion(s), chopped
1 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced
2 cup(s) water
14 1/2 oz canned tomatoes, whole, peeled and chopped
5 1/2 oz uncooked wild rice, long grain
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/8 tsp chili powder, or to taste
1/2 medium sweet red pepper(s), chopped
1/2 medium green pepper(s), chopped
1/2 cup(s) celery, sliced
2/3 cup(s) frozen green peas

Brown the chicken, garlic and onion. And don't worry about how much onion you're putting in. By the time it's all ready to eat, the onion will be sweet. Your house WILL smell after cooking this.

Then add the tomatoes, rice, turmeric, chili powder and simmer covered for 10 minutes.

THEN add the peppers and celery and simmer for 10 minutes more. If you're me, you went back to playing around on the computer during these 10 minutes.

Then add the peas and cook for about 5 minutes more until the peas are defrosted and warm.

Then serve on cute little plates, say a prayer over the food, and eat! The chicken is tender, the onions and peas sweet, and the turmeric adds a bit of spice.
