Janet Smith is my deceased mother. This easy recipe was her "backup" when she had to get something good out fast. My family loves it. One dish clean up too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The night before, take the frozen chicken and marinate it in the soy sauce in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. In a 9x13 casserole dish, spray with PAM.
  3. Add 2 cups of rice, the bullion and 4 cups of water and mix.
  4. Mix up entire jars of apple jelly, the whole bottle of ketchup, the frozen bell peppers and the pineapple bits into a bowl and pour over the rice.
  5. Add about 2-3 pounds of chicken thighs to the top and pour the apple jelly mix over the top.
  6. Bake it in a 350 oven for about an hour.
  7. The water chestnuts are optional, if you add them, add them into the apple jelly mixture. Same with the sesame seeds, they're optional. Just sprinkle them over the chicken before baking if you like.
