Pepsi Chicken & Rice

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by podapo

about 8-9 years ago, my daughter and I overheard a fireman telling the butcher about this recipe, sounded so easy and quick, we promptly made it and it's been a favorite since. HOWEVER, my hubby doesn't care for the rice so I always make him some plain rice seperate. The best part about this recipe is you can increase or decrease it depending on your needs.

I made this last night and the rice was still very crunchy after cooking it for 3 1/2 hrs. I used an entire 20 oz. bottle of pepsi and more than 2 cups bbq sauce and it was still way too dry to cook the rice. I have read the directions countless times trying to evaluate what I did wrong and am certain that I followed the recipe given.

  2. Put the rice in a 4 quart casserole.
  3. Spoon the chicken over this.
  4. Mix equal parts BBQ sauce and Pepsi.
  5. I always keep plenty as depending upon how much rice you use, will need to add more.
