Mom's Smothered Chicken & Rice

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Doozie

This was my mother's favorite recipe to put together when she had no time. It took just a few minutes to put together and with the boil in the bag rice they have on the market sure is a snap when the day and the small children have you wiped out. It is now my favorite "no time to cook" recipe. The onions cook down and make their own savory broth to mingle with the butter. I think you will like this recipe, especially when you have "no time" to fuss over a meal.

This was really good and easy to make. I used chicken breasts instead of thighs because we like white meat but otherwise followed the directions.
