This chicken and rice recipe makes 4-6 servings.
In a large frying pan or skillet, saute tomato, onion and pepper in olive oil. When onion is translucent, add pieces of chicken and cook for 5-8 minutes.
Add rice to pan, stirring to coat all the grains with the oil. Add chicken broth and turmeric, if desired. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered until the rice is cooked – approximately 20 minutes.
