    Bill Hilbrich's Note:

    This solo meal can be doubled, and if you have an instant read thermometer with an oven probe, the dish can be ignored until you are summoned to the kitchen. Serve with a green salad or maybe my Pickel Dilly Green Beans. Cooking is a Creative Sport.

      Sorry, but this just didn't work when increased. What kind of rice do you use? The chicken is all pallid and bland as a result of being poached. The chicken was done in 45 minutes, then I turned the heat up to 425 for another 45 minutes to finish the rice, and in spite of using half the lemon stated in the recipe, the rice was still very strongly flavored, the kids loved it, husband wouldn't eat it.

      This was really easy and really good! I used a dry white wine and Jasmine rice which came out perfect with just a slight crust/texture, and the chicken was moist. Adding this recipe to my favorites!

      Loved it! My partner loved it too but would like to sear the chicken a bit first. Also I was thinking that the saugy rice issue might have to do with adding the meat marinade to the rice which would be too much moisture for the rice to cook properly. Cheers!
