Turmeric Rice (Yellow Rice) with Onion Baked Chicken | Flo Chinyere


Hey guys! In this video I’ll show how to cook Turmeric
Rice. This simple delicious yellow rice does not
require frying of tomatoes. Somebody say Yay! I will serve the rice with Onion Baked Chicken. I will also share the recipe for that in this
video. Here are the ingredients you will need. The spices and seasoning, red onion, stock
cubes. Red bell pepper, the quantity depends on how
busy you want your turmeric rice to look. Chicken stock. I will bake the soft chicken straight from
raw that’s why I will be using this chicken stock to season the rice. You get chicken stock when you prepare something
like Peppered Chicken that you serve on its own as a snack. Green peas. Again the quantity depends on how busy you
want your yellow rice to look. Long grain parboiled rice which is the rice
we use for Nigerian rice recipes. You can also use the golden sella basmati
rice that I saw and used in the UK. This one! Then the chicken quarters. First we marinate the chicken. I’m using half of the onion … stock cubes … Nigerian curry powder … Black pepper … And thyme … Blend very well. I make these cuts to create more areas through
which the marinade can penetrate the chicken to make it delicious. Then rub the marinade on the chicken like
this. Cover and put it in the fridge for at least
1 hour. Dice the red pepper and the remaining half
of the onion. We start cooking the rice. Set some water to boil. This water will be used to parboil, that is
precook the rice. When it boils, add the rice, stir, cover and continue cooking on medium heat. Note when it boils and leave it to boil
for 10 more minutes. By then you can easily cut the rice grains
with your finger nails, no resistance. Pour into a sieve to drain and immediately
cool down the rice with cool water. Set aside to drain. By now, the chicken would have spent 1 hour
in the fridge. Place in an oven tray and bake in a preheated
oven at 200 degrees centigrade. Pour the chicken stock into a clean pot. Add the turmeric, black pepper, and Nigerian curry powder. When it boils, add the parboiled rice and
make sure the liquid is at the same level as the rice. If not top it up with water. Taste and add salt if necessary. If you parboiled the rice correctly, that
is very important, this rice will be done by the time this same
level of water dries up. This science holds true for whatever quantity
of rice you are cooking. This is the trick for no burnt rice, no soggy
rice, no uncooked rice, nada but perfect rice by the time the water
dries up! Then cover and start cooking on medium heat. After 40 minutes, the chicken is ready! But keep an eye on yours, this time may vary
because no two ovens are the same. When you can no longer see the water in the
rice, but it is not dry yet, add the other half of the onion, the red pepper and the green peas. Cover and continue cooking till the water
dries up. Stir till all the ingredients are well combined. There you have it, delicious, well done rice,
not soggy and not burnt! Not a single grain of burnt rice. Enjoy it with the onion baked chicken, Peppered Chicken, grilled chicken and other
Nigerian side dishes for rice. Bah-byeeee, See you soon!

  1. This turned out great! Didn't have any chicken on hand, so I used tiger shrimp instead. Positively scrumptious! Thank you much….

  2. Parboiling's probably where I've been going wrong with one-pot rice recipes.. I've been doing so in the way that I would rice for stew (letting all the water dry up so it's completely done). I'll try it this way.

  3. Apart from being hilarious, you are a great cook madam. Anyone in your household are lucky to have you. God knows they are lucky. I hope they know that. Great job. You just made me a better cook. Thank you for this video.

  4. I love your channel. I am super happy that I found your channel. I am very excited to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  5. my first video I've seen of yours, subbed. great video. I like your marinade. I've never seen it done this way.
    all marinades in the USA seem to be vinegar,sugar,salt and spices, this gives me yet another way to do it. thank you.

  9. Wonderful! This looks great!

    But please ma'am, can I use fish in place of the chicken because I'm allergic to eating chicken. Secondly I don't think I can find turmeric in my country. So, can I use only curry powder? Thanks while I anticipate.
