I have a subscription based model where Gold Members have access to every recipe on the site, which is under $5/month with annual memberships. If that's not your thing, there is also a Silver level membership that is free for life, still ad free, and you get access to more than 40% of the recipes.

4 lbs (1816 g) boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 tbsp (16 g) chili powder
4 tsp (12 g) salt
2 tsp (6 g) pepper
6 cups (900 g) cooked rice
4 medium (800 g) zucchini
16 oz (454 g) mushrooms
1 medium (200 g) onion
1 cup (112 g) cheddar cheese shredded
4 tbsp (60 g) olive oil
8 tbsp (120 g) buffalo sauce


1. Cook enough rice to yield 6 cups of cooked rice. 1 cup of dry rice will make around 2-3 cups of cooked rice depending on what kind you use.

2. In a large bowl add the chicken, a bit of oil, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.

3. You can cook your chicken however you like. I baked mine at 425°F for 10 minutes and then broiled it on the top rack for 5 minutes to develop color. Cut into 1 inch pieces. If you would rather pan fry it follow the instructions in the next step.

4. Heat a grill pan or a skillet over medium high heat and add some oil. Cook the chicken thighs for 4-5 minutes on each side. Cut them into a large dice and return to the pan to develop color.

5. Wash and cut your zucchini into a small dice and mushrooms into a large dice. Cut the onion into a small dice.

6. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and saute the onions for a couple of minutes.

7. Add in the zuchinni and cook until soft.

8. Add a bit more oil and add in the mushrooms, season with salt to help bring out the water. Allow them to cook and develop color.

9. Measure out 6 cups of cooked rice and add to a large bowl. Mix in the chicken, vegetables, cheese, and buffalo sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

10. This recipe makes 10 servings. Divide your ingredients evenly 10 ways.
