Chicken & Spring Onion Dirty Rice


Ingredients:
1/2 lb chicken livers, pureed
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 jalapenos, minced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 large bunch spring onions, bulbs and greens diced (separate use)
2 tablespoon minced fresh Italian parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
1/2 teaspoon hot paprika
1 1/3 cups chicken stock (divided use)
2 cups cubed, cooked chicken breast
3 cups hot cooked white rice


Directions:
In a 12-inch cast iron skillet, heat some oil. Add the liver and the white parts of the spring onion. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally until the liver is browned. Add 1/3 cup of chicken stock and all spices and cook until the stock evaporates. Add the celery and jalapenos and cook until they are soft.

Stir in the rice, herbs, remaining stock, cubed chicken and chopped spring onion greens. Stir until the liquid is absorbed then serve.


My thoughts:
Every time I go to Costco, I come home with a rotisserie chicken. I don't always have a plan for it but I can't resist a bargain. I had dirty rice in the back of my mind and was driving past the farm store so I picked up some liver (for like 50 cents!) and spring onions. Normally I use ground turkey or chicken in dirty rice but I decided to try it with the rotisserie chicken and you know what, I might have liked it better. It had it into more of a meal than a side dish.
