I made Vermicelli Rice and Baked Chicken for lunch yesterday.
The Vermicelli Rice goes really well with curry and I used this spice rub for the baked chicken which I originally posted about here a few years ago. I like to use it mainly for baked chicken, grilled salmon, or lamb roast.
Okay on to the recipe…
1 cup of uncooked vermicelli noodles
2 cups of uncooked basmati rice
2 tablespoons corn oil
Prepare the basmati rice according to my recipe “How to Cook Basmati Rice”
While you are waiting for the water to boil for the rice you can prepare the vermicelli. In a wok, heat the corn oil and add the vermicelli noodles.
Lightly stir the noodles until they turn a dark golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
When the water boils and you are ready to put the rice in also add the fried vermicelli.
Boil for 5 minutes and then drain. Put back in the pot and keep warm until ready to serve.
1 kg (2 pounds) whole chicken
1 medium tomato cut into half
1 medium onion quartered
3 cloves of garlic left whole
salt and pepper
Wash and pat dry the chicken. Season the tomato, onion, and garlic with salt and pepper. Stuff this into the chicken.
Prepare the spice mixture and rub it all over the chicken.
Bake in a 350F oven for 1 1/2 hours or until done and tender.
