It was my fault for not taking the package of chicken out of the freezer in the morning before I went to work and THEN at 4:30 actually thinking, "this will get done in time for supper." Still, dinner would've turned out well (delicious, even) if only a certain "someone" (who shall remain nameless, except for the recipe title!) could've waited another half-hour for the meat to cook through and the rice to get fluffy. :rofl: Instead, that long-ago dinner was a concoction of bloody-bone chicken and molar-tingling crunchy-hard rice in a soupy mess. Now...if THIS description doesn't inspire you, I don't know WHAT will!? .......Honestly, this is a very wonderful comfort food recipe.....just don't start with completely frozen chicken and think that it will be done in the one-hour baking!
