Quick and Easy Chicken, Peas, and Rice

Prepared December 24, 2012.
1-1/2 c basmati or other long-grain rice
2-1/4 c water
1 t salt
3/4 c frozen peas
1 can or jar prepared chicken gravy (Campbell's™ is good)
1 2-1/2 lb rotisserie chicken, trimmed of fat, excess skin, and disjointed
Bring the water and salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Thaw the peas in cold water. Rinse the rice in a strainer until the water runs almost clear. Stir the rice into the boiling water, cover, and reduce heat to a fast simmer. After 15 minutes, transfer the rice to a covered 2-quart glass casserole dish, drain the peas well, and stir into rice. Pour half the can of gravy over the rice and peas. Arrange the chicken pieces on top, and pour on the remainder of the gravy. Cover tightly, and microwave on 30% power (1250 watts maximum power) for 25 to 30 minutes until heated through. Serves 6.
