Chicken and Rice

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by mmm29

Don't let the low cooking temperature scare you, it turns out perfectly every time. This is an extremely easy, VERY yummy recipe. My family once served 65 people using this recipe (with the help of neighbors' ovens!). This recipe has won an award in a cooking contest.

My family loved this dish. The chicken was sooo tender and my rice didn't get hard like it does in some chicken and rice recipies. I did cover it while I baked it to ensure the rice on the top would not harden and so the chicken wouldn't get too dry. I also added a can of mushrooms and some shredded cheddar cheese to the soups. Very easy to make.
