Shrimp and rice recipes seem often complicated, but the bottom line is if you can cook shrimp and you can cook rice, there’s no way you can fail when mixing both.

Here is one of the most popular and classic shrimp rice recipe that you can prepare in less than 30 minutes.

Chicken and Shrimp Rice

1cup of uncooked rice (wild rice, long grain rice any type you like)
1/2 of boneless chicken breast
1 bell yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
½ cleaned and marinated shrimp
2 large tomatoes
2 sticks of butter
¼ cup of white wine

Cut the chicken breast in short strips. Add the sticks of butter together with the chicken in a pan under a medium flame. After 10 minutes add the shrimp and chopped bell peppers (you can cut them in cubes or slim strips) and the chopped tomatoes. Add ¼ cup of white wine and let it simmer for around 15 minutes. Season with salt pepper.(You can taste a little piece of chicken to make sure it is full cooked). Boil the rice separately. When ready, add one teaspoon of butter and salt.

Tip: If you like spicy food you can chop two jalapeno peppers and add them to the mix.

Serving: Take a small bowl and fill it up with rice. Cover it with a large plate and flip them over. The rice should nicely have the shape of a small bowl. Place the chicken and shrimp mix on top of the rice bed and your dish will look just like in an exquisite 5 star restaurant.
