Portuguese Stewed Chicken with Rice

As a child, I always loved eating my grandmother's chicken and rice. She had no recipe for it, of course, but after looking through many recipes and trying to imagine how the end result would taste, I think I found it with this simple recipe.

Chopped onion, tomato, paprika, and garlic are sauteed in olive oil. A bay leaf, white wine and one chicken (cut-up) are added to the pot with enough water to cover. The chicken is simmered until done, then long-grained white rice is added. 20 minutes later, real comfort food!

You can PRINT THE RECIPE here.

I've been in California visiting my daughter and her family for the last several weeks. I did a lot of cooking, but I was too busy being Gramma to this angel to take pictures of food and keep up with my blog!


  1. Karen:

    This looks so good, yet so simple.

    I'll being doing the Gramma thing, too, in a couple of weeks. Hope you had a wonderful time!

  2. What a delicious looking dish..simple is usually the best tasting!
    You do have a sweet grandaughter! So glad you could go for a visit and just be grandma!

  3. This recipe sounds really good. I love simple flavors. Your DGD is a real cutie.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful chicken preparation, very yummy!

  5. Sounds fantastic, stewed chicken is a good time.

  6. I know nothing about Portuguese cooking but after looking through some of your recipes, I see some interesting cooking.

    This recipe is soothing and different from what I usually make. I printed it. I never say that I will make it since realistically, there are fantastic recipes online and this seems to be one of them. I am limited, time wise, as I am sure you understand.

    Bottom line, I would like to make this and will try to get to it for my Friday chicken.

  7. Mmmm, my tastebuds & tummy have sure missed you Karen! Good to hear you were bestowing those gifts on your deserving family. I love that your granddaughter has her own little lounge chair! She does not look very happy that you snapped that photo lol!
