Baked Chicken and Rice

"My family loves this recipe I got from my Mom when I got married. It's one of my favorites. I usually double or triple the rice part of this recipe my kids love it and there's not enough of it if I don't. Hope you love it as much as we do!"

  1. Had to double the cooking time as rice and chicken were not done in 40 minutes. Wrapped pan tightly in foil and everything was fine. May have just been my old electric oven.
  2. Very good! I made this tonight using 7 chicken legs because that is what I had on hand. I doubled the rice and the other saucepan ingredients. I used 16 drops of yellow food-coloring and that was plenty. DH is already looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow:) Next time I may take the chicken out the last 15 minutes, put in its own pan with a little bbq sauce just for some contrast in color. Thanks for a good recipe!
  3. This is absolutely delicious! I added some carrots and peas and ended up making more rice, so I had to cook my chicken separately, but it still came out well. Oh, and I didn't have parsley, so I added Italian seasoning instead. Definitely a keeper! Thanks!
  4. real tasty. instead of the bouillon cubes I used "herb ox (sodium free) chicken granulated bouillon" turned out great, next time I'll have to double the rice!
