Making chicken Basque with white rice...
Asked on 2 Jul 2020 by Jane Martin
Some recipes specify brown rice (e.g. Chicken Basque) which I'm not too keen on. Would I have to adjust the cooking time if I use white rice instead? I think it cooks more quickly.
Yes, your right. If you want to use white rice, it will need to be added later, as it needs much less cooking time. For the Basque I would take it off the heat 25 minutes before the end of the cooking time. Lift out the chicken, add the rice, return the chicken to the pan, cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes and then check the rice.
Thanks Lindsay for your prompt and helpful reply.
