Chicken Rancho

Chicken Rancho created by ihvhope

I'm posting this for safe keeping. I got this recipe from my step-mom. She didn't cook much but she'd make this now and then and I remember thinking I'd died and gone to heaven. I have been making it for myself for too many years to count. It's easy and always a crowd pleaser. It's great served with warmed tortillas and a garnish of sour cream. Do not leave out the turmeric--it makes this dish. It alway makes the BEST leftovers.

    I think I must have done something wrong. The rice was very mushy. I did cover the dish, perhaps that was the problem, uncovering it for the last half hour. The flavor was subtle and the chicken moist, but the rice was disappointing. I will try this again cutting back the chicken stock by 1/2 cup.

    Had this for dinner tonight. It was delicious. Left it in the oven when we went to services. Cooked for 3 hrs @ 275F and then 30 min @ 350. Came out wonderfully. If I had a bigger dish, I would have put in a little more rice since it seems to go so quickly.

    This is delicious. I didn't have as much time to cook this as I needed, so I used orzo instead and cut the chicken into smaller pieces. I also stirred in baby spinach leaves after it was cooked and covered it so they would wilt. My husband and son raved about it "best ever". Thank you for this amazing one dish meal
