Baked Chicken Rice

Baked Chicken Rice
First of all I am so sorry about the picture today. While we were making Baked Chicken Rice, the power went off for almost an hour. It’s good that chicken was cooked before blacked out. Baked chicken with chicken flavoured fluffy rice with hot and sweet sauce worked wonderful for a candle light dinner

It’s a great experience to eat in the dark with a candle light… it’s so romantic. While we were eating the light has come back. I suggested we turned it off for a few hours! I loved when the house was filled with the warmed light of aromatic candle and when we could talk and spend more time together while TV and other things was off.

Have you ever tried dinning in dark theme restaurant where people eating in the dark without any light source? It sounds so much fun. Will you consider trying it?

Have a beautiful day,
