Comforting Chicken and Rice

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Lyssie71

My mom and grammie used to make this for me as a little girl. For me, there is no better comfort food. It really is more flavorful if you use bone-in pieces.

I made this last night and really enjoyed how creamy the rice turned out. I used bone in thighs. Thanks for a good recipe! Made for PAC (Pick A Chef 2008).
