Recipe for family meals :

Solo Trinity Plus Chicken Pilaf

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "The cooking tradition of the Southern United States, changes the classic mirepoix to a trinity of onion, green bell peppers and celery. The celery seed in this recipe completes the classic Southern Trinity without adding bulk, and the plus is jalapeno peppers that adds a little kick to this lunch dish".


1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1/3 cup onions
1/3 cup green bell peppers
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
1/3 cup jalapeno peppers
1/3 cup long grain rice
2/3 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter

  • Cut the chicken, onion, seeded jalapeno peppers and bell pepper into roughly 1/2 inch pieces Heat oil and butter in a sauce pan that has a tight fitting lid.
  • Add onion, and sauté until nearly transparent.
  • Add the rice and stir until all the grains are coated in the oil/butter mixture.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and stir.
  • Put the lid on, reduce heat to lowest level, leave alone for 15 minutes.
  • DO NOT Peek.
  • After the cooking time,without removing the lid, remove from the heat and let sit for an additional 15 minutes.
