Recipe by Helping Hands
This is yet another baked chicken and rice recipe! However, I wanted to share my wonderful mother's recipe for it, because this particular recipe makes the rice turn out so nice and fluffy. When I have used other recipes for this dish, I have found that the rice often comes out overcooked. I think the secret to this recipe is that milk is used, along with the soup, keeping the rice nice and moist. I also love the onion soup mix added to this dish - it really jazzes up the flavor! This recipe is a wonderful dish to serve to company (I usually serve it with a nice, flavorful salad of some sort) because it is so easy to just throw it in the oven an hour or so before serving it to guests - so that the chef can enjoy the festivities, as well!
