Introduction

This is the perfect dinner recipe if you're having a few friends over! It looks elaborate with the rice, chicken and potatoes but it honestly only takes 30-40 minutes including marination time! But the trick is to use leftover boiled rice, and if you don't have any in the fridge just boil some more and cool it down before using it for this recipe! This platter will have your friends oooing over your cooking skills!
