Cajun Chicken

Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Leftovers do freeze fairly well!
If reheating from frozen: Thaw leftover chicken overnight in the fridge (or defrost it in the microwave) and then bake it in a small, lightly greased, covered casserole dish at 350° for 20-25 minutes.
My Process for Perfectly Cooked Rice:
Bring 2 cups chicken broth to a boil. Add 1 cup white long grain rice and bring it back to a boil.
Cover tightly and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes. Turn heat off.
Optional: Remove from heat and let the rice sit in the pot, covered, for 10 full minutes. Any rice stuck to the bottom will release during this time.
This will yield 3 cups of flavorful rice.
Note: Other varieties of rice will require different amounts of liquid and simmering time.
