uncooked white rice
2 1/2 cups
chicken blood with a dash of vinegar mixed in
chicken leg quarters
hot pepper sauce
This is a good, basic recipe. Please don't let the blood turn you off. Recipe like this were created to prevent wasting any part of the chicken. I cooked the rice in chicken stock instead of water. To my fellow reviewers; maybe you could post something constructive. I don't understand how "I did not care for this recipe at all" could possibly to be rated "helpful"
I did not care for this recipe at all.
I like trying new stuff, But this was bad.
Try this recipe with a rabbit. My family used this for hunted rabbit.
I loved this recipe! It was delicious! I love Portuguese food and my family from Portugal loved it! A main stay at my home
I love this portugee recipe, and i'm not portugese. My husband is. It tastes delicious and i didn't know it was made with blood like 2 years. Only when i wanted to learn how to cook this rice i found it out. I do it once a months. Try it it's good
This recipe was excellent! I made a few minor tweaks: 3 cloves garlic, jasmine rice, cabernet sauvignon wine, and instead of hot pepper sauce (I didn't know what kind to use), added a bit of hungarian paprika and cayenne pepper. With chicken, this was excellent. I can imagine this working well for rabbit, pork, squab, squirrel, or other medium bodied meats. Two notes: 1. I have noticed from cooking this and blood sausages, that blood responds poorly to being cooked in cast iron. I would recommend any chefs trying this recipe use stainless steel or another inert cooking surface. 2.) My fresh blood had separated overnight, but I was able to homogenize it by slowly pouring boiling water over the mass and pushing it through a strainer. I will make this with fresh blood next time to obviate this step.
