Chicken LP-Bog

img_5844-1If you have ever visited us on Sullivan’s Island then you no doubt have been to the Obstinate Daughter for the Friday night welcome dinner.  Since guests always come in on Friday, but at different times, we kick the weekend off with cocktails at the house, usually the Frozen Vodka with Basil and then golf cart down to dinner.   It’s a great way to disconnect, you know the time in life they you forget to check your iPhone, live in real time and are not carrying on a text conversations with people a thousand miles away about some project.

One of the dishes on the dinner menu is The Country Captain which is a variation of the old southern favorite The Chicken Bog. But we have switched it up to a curried rice dish that is a big crowd pleaser even for the curry haters.  This is a great one dish meal for a lunch or simple dinner.  You can leave out the chicken and serve as a side-dish.

  • 1 cup shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon garlic cloves, finely chopped
