Preparation

  1. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  2. Core and seed the peppers. Cut them into one-inch cubes. There should be about four cups.
  3. Heat the butter in a skillet, in which the chicken pieces will fit snugly, with a tight-fitting lid. Add the chicken and cook over moderately low heat, turning the pieces without browning, about five minutes.
  4. Add the onion, garlic and curry powder, and cook, stirring, without browning, until the chicken is well coated with the curry. Add the green peppers and continue cooking, stirring often and turning the chicken pieces, about five minutes.
  5. Add the bay leaf, wine and rice, and stir to blend.
  6. Pour in the chicken broth and stir. Cover closely and cook over moderately low heat about 15 minutes. Add the shrimp, pushing them down into the rice. Cook about five minutes longer or until the rice is tender and most of the liquid absorbed.
