  1. Combine water, salt, 2 tablespoons butter, and red chili peppers in a pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil.
  2. Stir in rice, cover, and lower heat to medium. Cook until rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Heat sesame oil in a skillet or wok over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute; pour in half the soy sauce.
  4. Cook and stir chicken, basil, white pepper, dry mustard, and turmeric with garlic until chicken is browned, no longer pink in the center, and juices run clear, 5 to 8 minutes.
  5. Mix remaining soy sauce into chicken mixture.
  6. Cook and stir 1 tablespoon butter with broccoli, green pepper, red pepper, and onion in a separate skillet until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir lemon juice into vegetables.
  7. Toss vegetables with chicken.

Disclaimer: I'm rating the stir fry w/out the rice as I realized I only had "Ready Rice" as I was preparing this. (And my actual rating would be a "3", but I'm rounding up just in case the rice is awesome) This is surprisingly bland. The entire time I was making this, I really wanted to add a shot of sesame, some garlic, and some soy to the veggies. I wish I would have. The chicken had good flavor, but there was no "sauce" to speak of to add any flavor to the veggies. This was ok, but it won't be a repeat at the LTH house. Thanks for the recipe, ally-gator!

This was pretty good but I didn't care for the spicy rice, next time I would just do plain brown rice.

Yummy stir fry recipe. Tasted great the next day for lunch too.

I thought this was pretty good. I've actually made it twice, since I had all the ingredients on hand, and I made it exactly as written. I was a little confused about where the chili rice got mixed with everything, as it's not mentioned towards the end of the recipe steps, then I noticed in the recipe introduction that the chicken/vegetable mixture is meant to be served over the chili rice. Actually, I thought the chili rice itself was quite nice, as I'd never made anything like it (I used large dried "California Chili Pods" for it). The overall dish is quite tasty, and lasted me for 3-4 days each time.

I just made this, my wife and I loved it! It wasn't bland and had a burst of flavor. I adjusted the recipe a little bit, added about 6 cloves of garlic, 2 before the chicken (as called) and another 4 to the vegetables. Instead of using butter to saute the veggies, I used sesame oil in the wok where I cooked the chicken (putting the chicken aside) and added the tablespoon of soy sauce to the veggies while cooking. I also added about a teaspoon of cayenne to the mixture that cooks with the chicken. Overall, it turned out really yummy!

VERY good! I added julienne carrots, and it added a nice flavor. Made WAY too much rice for us. I would cut down on that next time.

I entered this in a work competition. Ok, I got 2nd place but everyone agreed it was extremely good.
