Hearty Recipe from Gaviscon

Hola lovelies, my company dinner had come to an end last night, glad that no one actually spoil the event and I think our committee team did better than last year, hope that we didn't get any complain on coming post-mortem meeting. Too bad, I did not get any lucky draw this year but I'm still happy to see others get away great prizes like cash or gadgets, again thanks to our committee team for working so hard to look for sponsorship; it was like a great Raya gift to them, every one of us still in the mid of celebrating this festival. 
Talking about Raya, I didn't went to elsewhere to celebrate it as most of my Malay colleagues went back to their hometown, does it means I can't enjoy all the Raya food since I was not going to open house during the period? Nah, normally food just comes to me automatically. Laugh. After the Raya holiday, they brought the ketupat, lemang and curry chicken to office so that we can had it for hi-tea (a good excuse for idling our work around 30-45 minutes), how sweet! Apart from this, I'm loved as I also got a lot a lot a lot of homemade Raya cookies from my underling; unlimited small bites are available here but remember to drink more water since cookies are heaty! Each year Raya, I'll see lots of family dining in Nando's or any restaurant related to chicken, it's like every meal with chicken only can fulfill the tummy and hey they just smell so good everytime I pass by those restaurant. 

I was then come across with a recipe about 'Baked Chicken and Wild Rice', the name itself already sound finger-licking good somemore it's low-fat recipe of chicken and rice. Before I test it out at home, I wanted to share the recipe to all the lovelies who are reading this before the Raya feast end, so that you could cook this at home and on nom nom with your family, the most important: to enjoy!

Baked Chicken and Wild Rice

  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cups sodium free chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup uncooked white rice
  • 3/4 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon (or dried) - click here if you wonder what is this, thanks to Google
  • 1 teaspoon organic chopped ginger (or ground)
  1. Pour 1 cup of chicken broth into a large non-stick pot. Add the chicken, mushrooms, celery and spices. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 8 minutes or until chicken and veggies are tender.
  2. Let the mixture cool.
  3. Pour the rice into baking dish and add vinegar and the remaining chicken broth. Let it soak for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325 degree Fahrenheit (~160 Celsius).
  5. Add the chicken and vegetable mixture to the baking dish and stir well.

This is how the Baked Chicken and Wild Rice is going to looks like if you follow the recipe above, looks tempting right? Thanks to Gaviscon for sharing this hearty recipe, going to test it at home as if I have time. Never try wild rice before but now my family totally switch it to brown rice from white rice, of course we cannot control it at restaurant as  most of them serving white rice. 
Gaviscon not only comes in liquid bottle and tablets, now they also come in a convenient liquid sachet format so that you can bring it to anywhere you want. I prepared 2 sachets in my Tupperware bag and bring it to company every now and then so that it can heal my indigestion if I happened to suffer from this. I did try it before when I suffered from indigestion, it tastes like mint so it's not hard to drink/suck it, and I really felt better after a sachet of Gaviscon. Just visit their website for more information.

Go 24 hours without complaining, not even once... Then watch how your life starts changing.
