Long grain and brown rice would be a perfect ingredient for this recipe. However, if you are using brown rice be sure to add 2 oz of chicken stock to the liquid. Brown rice is harder to cook than long-grain white rice. You may also add some vegetables such as broccoli, sugar snap peas, carrots, and even spinach.
I suggest cooking the rice and chicken ahead of time. This is to make sure that the rice is well-rested and dry during the frying process. Day-old rice is perfect for this recipe. But make sure to put it in the refrigerator so it won’t spoil. Adding a quarter cup of coconut milk to the day-old rice will be a game-changer for the dish.
This curry rice recipe is freezer-friendly, meaning you can store it in the freezer and reheat it in the microwave. This serves can be a great lunch for those who don’t have enough time to prepare a delicious meal.
