Chicken & Golden Rice

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN

This homey Vietnamese dish is simply shredded chicken with fresh herbs and turmeric-scented jasmine rice. Using a rotisserie bird makes speedy work of it.

  1. 1 garlic clove, minced
  2. 1/2 tablespoon oil
  3. 1/8 teaspoon turmeric
  4. 1 cup jasmine rice, rinsed
  5. 1 cup chicken broth
  6. Salt
  7. Ground pepper
  8. 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  9. 1/2 small white onion, thinly sliced
  10. 1/2 cup torn Thai basil
  11. 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  12. Lemon wedges
  13. 1/4 cup soy sauce
  14. 1 tablespoon Sriracha chile sauce
  1. In a small saucepan, cook the garlic in the oil over moderate heat for 1 minute. Add the turmeric and rice and cook for 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff the rice, season with salt and pepper and cover.
  2. In a bowl, toss the chicken with the onion, basil, cilantro and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and transfer to plates. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce and Sriracha. Serve the chicken with the rice, dipping sauce and lemon wedges.
