Easy Smoky Rice
This easy smoky rice side dish gets its flavor from smoked paprika, chilis, and garlic. It’s an ideal side to highlight and compliment a main dish’s smoky flavor.
The rice pairs perfectly with Smoky Broccoli and Beer Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts. In this recipe, the chicken breast wrapped in bacon gets an oozy surprise from the broccoli and spicy beer spread cheese stuffed inside it. This is quick and easy to make, yet don’t let that fool you. This is one flavorful gourmet, tasting dish!
Looking at this meal, it may surprise you that the chicken prep time was five minutes. The prep on the Easy Smoky Rice was less than that! The oven and the rice cooker did all the work. If you’re tight on time, this rice side dish is the perfect accompaniment to a smoky-centric entrée.

Welcome to Foodie de Froid!
If you love real food, take pleasure in eating, and strive for mouth-watering flavor, you have come to the right place. Here the star of the show IS the food, presenting it in a way that makes it shine.
We feature many appetizers and individual-sized recipes as a purposeful way to experience and share food.
Our mouth reacts to flavors in a transitional way. That first taste creates an exciting experience with the food’s intense flavors, textures, and visual appeal. Yet after the first few bites, our mouths and minds adjust, and that experience deadens.
Thus, the tasting experience! We served 14 consecutive courses at my last tasting party. Each was purposely selected to bring new flavors, textures, and presentations, creating surprises and wow moments throughout the night.
The recipes are documented with ingredients we love. Yet my greatest hope is to have you understand why the recipes work and eventually make them into your personal version using your favorite ingredients and presentations.
