Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In 13x9 inch pan, combine first 7 incredients, mix well. Arrange chicken on the rice mixture, skin side up, drizzle with butter. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt, paprika and poultry seasoning. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until chicken is tender.
  2. Tips: For chicken atop dressing, substitute 8-oz pkg. herb-seasoned stuffing mix for rice. Omit first 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bake covered with foil at 375 for 1 hour; remove foil and bake 30 minutes longer. This makes a moist dressing. If you prefer a drier dressing, decrease water to 1 1/2 cups.
  3. Wild rice can be substituted for half of rice.
  4. For pork chops atop rice, in large skillet, brown 6 pork chops. Arrange pork chops on rice mixture, omit butter.
