The young man who repairs my computers sent me a picture on Saturday of the cooling element in my laptop. Boy was it ever dirty. No wonder it was getting to hot to handle. There is an excellent video on how to do this, but with my propensity, lately, of dropping bits of earrings etc. and not being able to find them, I figured with all the screws and little bits off the motherboard I had better shell out and get it done professionally. That bit that looks like grey/brown felt is dust/lint.
This picture caught my eye and reading the recipe it sounded a nice easy dish to prepare. This is from a blog from an English girl who is also a Jo.
One Pot Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole
it's cheesy, it's comforting and it's made in one pot. It's dinner!
1 Tbs olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
salt and pepper to taste
4 cloves garlic, minced
¾ cup rice (I used Basmati)
1 can (10 oz) cream of chicken soup
2 to 3 cups chicken broth
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add chopped onion and cubed chicken. Cook on medium heat for a few minutes until the chicken starts to brown a bit. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in garlic and cook for another 30 seconds until garlic gets aromatic.
2. Add the rice, cream of chicken soup and chicken broth. Start with 2 cups of chicken broth and if more is needed add more until rice is fully cooked. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook over medium heat until the rice is fully cooked, stirring occasionally, should take about 15 minutes or so. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.
3. Add the broccoli florets and half the cheese then continue cooking for 2 more minutes, until broccoli softens a bit. Sprinkle over the top with remaining cheese and place the skillet under the broiler for a couple more minutes, just until it melts and starts to brown a bit.
4. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
