Comfort food: The perfect recipe to end a great weekend

Comfort food takes on many different forms.  Chicken noodle soup, grilled cheese & tomato soup, soft-boiled eggs and toast soldiers, stew, macaroni & cheese.  These are things that typically come to mind.  My favourite comfort food is a recipe that my mom makes,  a warm yummy mix that never fails to make me feel good.  I’m sure it has a name somewhere, but heck if I know what it is.

Mom’s Chicken & Sausage & Rice


1 medium onion

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

3 sausages (Italian or chorizo works really well)

1 cup white wine

2 cups brown rice

4 cups chicken stock or water

2 cups frozen vegetables ( I used corn & peas)

Step 1.

Cut chicken & sausage into bite sized pieces, dice onion

Step 2.


Brown chicken and onion with a tiny bit of oil or butter in a large pot with a lid.  Once brown, remove the chicken and onion to a bowl.

Step 3.


Brown sausage in same pan and remove from pan


Step 4.

Apply white wine


deglaze bottom of the pan, scraping up all the yummy brown bits

Step 5.


Add back the chicken and onion and sausage, along with the brown rice and the water

Step 6.


Cook for 40 minutes, or until rice is cooked

Step 7.


Remove from heat and add the frozen veggies.  Stir the vegetables into the mix, and put the lid back on for 3 minutes to cook them.

Step 8.



This recipe serves about 6, or, it serves 2 people 1 dinner and about 4 lunches.

1 bowl of yum + 1 cozy fire + rice krispie squares = a great Sunday night!


So tell me: What’s your favourite comfort food?  Share your best recipe, I’d love to try them out!
