I do love a rice bowl meal. It is comforting, usually easy to make and it doesn’t hurt that I am obsess with rice!
I was researching online on Colombian recipes and stumbled upon a gorgeous food blog by Erica which has a wide collection of Colombian recipes. Among the recipes, the chicken with cilantro-parsley- capers sauce caught my eye and appetite. This recipe is like chimichurri meets decadence, in the form of cream sauce. Yes, another chicken with cream sauce recipe! It’s pretty obvious that I am going a through phase at the moment ha!
Capers, cilantro and parsley really add freshness to otherwise a rich and heavy cream sauce. To keep up with the fresh and light theme, I have added diced capsicum (red bell pepper) and cucumber for their crisp texture as well as the veggie factor. The rice I was using was brown rice just because they are better for you and I love the nuttiness which really ties all the flavours together.
