Chicken with Brown Rice Spanish Style

3

This is similar to Paella but without all the different proteins. I love cooking with brown rice but hate the 45-50 minutes it takes to cook. I have found an easy fix for that. In the morning, measure out the rice you need for your recipe into a bowl and cover with water. Let it soak all day and drain off the water just before cooking. This will cut your cooking time in half. It should now take about 20-25 minutes to cook the rice.
