Spicy Chicken and Rice to Feed the Invading Army

This can feed a small family for a week, all your cousins for a couple of days and an invading army for dinner. Its very addictive, the leftovers taste better and better as they last, and teenagers have even been known to heat it up and feed themselves rather than sticking with grab and go food.

6 Chicken thighs

Jar of spicy salsa (TJ's has a great one, very liquidy with a yellow cap)

1.5 cups rice

3 tbsp butter (to make it better)

Yogurt, to serve with (oh yeah) or Sour Cream, if you're sour cream people

Place thighs in a large pot, pour salsa on top, use the empty salsa jar and fill it with water and pour it in. Bring to a boil and simmer for 40 to 60 min. Take out the chicken (dont toss the water) shred it all up with either forks or your hands (when you lose patience with the forks). Put it back in the pot, if you marinate it overnight it will be even better. Top it with the rice, mix it all up, cover it with more water if you need to (you're looking for 1 in of water on top of the rice. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for around 30 minutes. Cut the butter into chucks and mix it in. Serve with yogurt.
