Recipe of the Month to Celebrate My News:

My Caribbean historical, THE PRIVATEER, has been released with Awe-Struck Publishing. Find out more at my Author site: www.daniellethorne.jimdo.com

This month’s recipe has NO boiled eggs! So take a break from those old Easter eggs and try this nice rice variation that is really popular with my picky eaters!

Caribbean Rice

2 teaspoons oil
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup onion, minced
2 cups rice
4 cups chicken broth

Heat oil in a large saucepan, add coconut, and stir until browned. Add onion and rice and mix well. Add broth and bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer 30 minutes until tender and liquids evaporate.

Serve with blackened chicken breast strips or broiled skinless, boneless chicken breast with Jamaican rub.

I've never combined coconut and chicken flavors together and I know it's not uncommon, I'll have to try that recipe out sometime though.
