We gather all the ingredients to prepare the Christmas rice thread.
We start cooking the rice in plenty of boiling water with a little salt. Once cooked, cool and reserve. In another pot, cook the chicken breast with water and a little salt for 15 minutes.
Trick: The cooking time will depend on the manufacturer's instructions. Prevent the rice from passing so that it is loose.
In a frying pan we sauté the cooked ham and the bacon. In this way, these ingredients will be tastier and, therefore, the Christmas thread as well.
On the other hand, peel and grate the carrot with the help of a grater. If you don't have a grater, you can cut it into small squares.
In a bowl we mix the ingredients. Thus, we add the rice, the cooked and crumbled chicken, the carrot, the sweet ham and the bacon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
We add the peas and season with 3 or 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise. You can make homemade mayonnaise so that the Christmas rice thread is 100% made by you, or buy it ready-made.
We put the filling for the rice cake in a bowl thread-shaped. And if you do not have it, you can use a round container with a glass in the center as we have done. We put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Once you unmold this Christmas rice thread, it will be ready to eat. As you can see, it is a starter for the simple, delicious and very complete Christmas menu. Consult the following recipes and prepare a gourmet but inexpensive dinner:
- Baked turkey breast
