My father is a genious cook in his own right. Known for the gift of excess. This is a pure example of a dish he would make for us as kids when mom of course wasnt home. Maybe accompanied by fried heavily salted pork chunks. Anyway this one is Pepperoni with rice, where HE would of course NOT skim any of the grease from the pepperoni, I do, you got to know when enough is too much. added the chicken to make a complete meal but just pepperoni makes a great side dish. For the cooking handicapped just buy a bag of yellow rice mix and begin the recipe by browning stick pepperoni chunks, remove chunks until all ingredients come to a boil otherwise the pepperoni will lose all thier flavor.
