101 Uses for a Roast Chicken #13: Dirty Rice

I see ads all the time for Zatarain's rice mixes, and a couple of weeks ago, my local overpriced grocery store had them on sale and I decided to take the opportunity to try one out. I didn't, however, read the instructions until I got home, so I didn't know I would be adding beef to the mix. But luckily, I had a better idea! When I made stock for my tofu soup, I froze the shredded chicken for a future use, and thought it would go well in this dirty rice mix.

I was right!

I had the perfect amount of chicken left over and added it to the rice mix when you're directed to add the beef. The flavour was excellent. The rice mix, though Cajun in origin, wasn't too spicy for me and tasted great. This was a really good meal that I'd definitely do again!

I'd love to be in New Orleans right now for Mardis Gras munching on some of this in between my good times.
