Mr. Rife Chicken

Mr. Rife Chicken

A healthy chicken meal experienced simply with onion, peppers, and mushrooms, developed by an instructor and good friend of ours who had a profound effect on my child’s (and, as a result, all of our) lives.

Mr. Rife was our TaeKwonDo instructor, who befriended my boy and invited him to play D&D with him and his pals. My boy, an extremely imaginative, creative, intelligent and reclusive one, had actually been going through some difficult times and this invite indicated the world to him. They satisfied weekly to play the video game (which took many hours) and generally purchased supper while playing, however one night Mr. Rife cooked his unique chicken meal for everybody. My boy ENJOYED it. He tasted Mr. Rife’s chicken and raved about it a lot so that we HAD to recreate it at home. Mr. Rife was a bit puzzled by my son’s reaction due to the fact that my kid ate ONLY the chicken and the rice, no peppers, no mushrooms, no onion. “You are missing out on all the taste!” Mr. Rife told him, but my ridiculous young kid did not care. He liked the tastes that the mushrooms, peppers and onions imparted into the chicken and enjoyed the taste of the chicken alone.

I want I might report that my boy has altered over the years, but no, he still eats the chicken and rice and leaves the veggies for mama to consume. This meal is simple and simple with no spices to take over, so the taste of the chicken, the mushrooms, the peppers and the onion actually shine through.

Mr. Rife no longer teaches TaeKwonDo and we no longer are associated with it either, however we still remember him whenever we make this chicken.



Active Ingredients
