What? Another chicken dish? A one and a half pot meal if you reheat the rice in the microwave. This also works great with chicken thighs--maybe better.

Excellent and remarkably easy, too, just as it is. A winning combo for sure. Great flavor. My husband loves it also, so I'll be making this one often. Thanks for posting.
Tender chicken and a complex gravylike sauce that turns plain rice into a decadent treat. I have made something like this before called a chicken fricasee, which does pretty much mean "fried chicken stew." I use a fairly dry Spanish rose. From the time I added the chicken back to the pot, it took about 1/2 hour or maybe a little more for the chicken to cook through and the sauce to thicken.
