Rotisserie Chicken Masala Rice ~ Fusion Recipes

My daughter loves Rotisserie Chicken, when she tags along with me for a grocery trip at Sprouts, she insists me to buy the Rotisserie Chicken. Though we enjoy the Rotisserie Chicken as a family,  we won't be able to finish the whole bird in one shot, kids don't show interest to eat it in second meal. So i convert the left over Rotisserie Chicken into Masala Rice, that does magic at the dinner table in this new Avatar! Since the rotisserie chicken is so tender and soft, it adds very nice flavor to Rice, and a touch of masala spices makes it zesty and delicious. I call it Win-Win recipe, here is the recipe, Enjoy!

Rotisserie Chicken Masala Rice

Rotisserie Chicken - 2 Cups (pull apart chicken pieces with bones)
Cooked Basmati Rice - 3 Cups
Veggies - 1 Cup (frozen, optional)
Onion - 1 medium
Green Chili - 2 medium
Oil - 2 tbsp
Crushed Red Pepper - 1 tsp
Masala Spices -  (Cinnamon, Clove, Star Anice, Shazeera, Bay leave)
Salt - 1 tsp (according to your taste)
Biryani Masala Powder - 2 tsp

Preparatory Steps:
  • Chop Onion and Green Chili length wise. Thaw veggies and microwave for 1 to 2 min.
  • If you are using left over cooked rice, crumble the rice in a wide plate, until each grain gets separated from each other with no lumps. 

  1. Heat Wide Pan on stove, add Oil. Once Oil is hot, add Masala Spices, followed by crushed red pepper. Saute for 1 min, so that oil gets infused with spices. Add onion and green chili slices to pan and mix with spices, saute for 2 min. 
  2. Add chicken to pan and mix gently until it is coated with spices. If you are adding mixed veggie add to pan now and saute with chicken and spices.
  3. Add salt and Biryani Masala to pan and mix with chicken and veggies.
  4. Add cooked rice to pan and mix gently up side down until rice is combined with chicken and spices. 
  5. Simmer for 3 to 5 min in low heat. Taste and adjust salt as needed. 
  6. Top with chopped mint or coriander leaves and switch off the stove. Serve warm immediately  and enjoy this fusion chicken rice as it is!

  • Veggie addition is optional in this recipe, if you don't like adding veggie in your chicken rice you can totally eliminate that with out losing much flavor. :-)
  • I add veggie as I am veggie lover and they add nice natural color to this rice. 

Will be back with another Fusion Recipe, 
Stay Happy and Keep Smiling, Bye until next time!
