Yellow Rice and Milk Gravy 1 pkg. Vigo Yellow Rice

Butter

Prepare rice according to package directions-increasing the amount of butter and water. Double the amount of butter and add ¼ to ½ cup liquid. Milk Gravy After frying chicken, turn off heat; pour off ¾ of oil remaining in pan. To the remaining oil, add ½ to ¾ cup flour (seasoned flour left over from coating chicken). Carefully stir flour into hot oil. Stir until incorporated. At this point the flour/oil should be fluid (not dry and crumbly). To create the correct texture-either add more oil (if too stiff) or more flour if too soupy. Technically, this is a roux, and depending on the color desired continue to cook in this state for several minutes until colored reached. Add liquid gradually, stirring constantly. Note: Can use water from boiling potatoes, or chicken broth or plain water. Start with 4 cups liquid and pour 1-2 cup at a time stirring constantly. Discontinue liquid when desired consistency achieved. Lower heat, allow to simmer for few minutes. Turn off heat and add ½-1 cup milk (depending on amount of gravy).
