Chicken & Rice Bake


Good Tuesday Morning!
I thought you'd like to be greeted by the cute faces of my kiddos this morning {besides the fact that I have no picture of this meal, and who can write a post without a picture? Not me!}

Today, I have a super easy recipe for you that I received from another missionary wife many years ago. It uses ingredients that I think most of us would have on hand, and you can throw it all together and then just let it cook. Those kind of recipes are always nice to have in our back pockets!

Chicken & Rice Bake

3 lbs. chicken pieces {whatever you've got will work}
1 1/2 c. uncooked rice
3 c. boiling water and 2 chicken bouillon cubes OR 3 c. hot chicken stock
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning {opt.}
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
margarine or butter

Place rice in bottom of 9x13 baking dish.
Dissolve bouillon cubes in water; add poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper.
                                                OR
Add poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper to hot chicken stock.
Pour over uncooked rice.
Salt and pepper chicken to taste.
Rub chicken pieces with margarine or butter.
Place chicken skin side up on rice.
Bake at 350 degrees, covered, for 45 minutes.
Remove cover and bake 15 minutes longer to let chicken brown.

Serve with whatever condiments and sides you wish!
{We eat ours with a local condiment called.....shito! And it is delicious!}
Enjoy!

That sounds so good and easy! I just might have to try it tomorrow! We are having company and I will be gone all day at the doctors, so needing a quick, easy meal.

We had this for supper tonight. I have done something similar, but I liked the fact that I did not need to make soup or anything; it was just water and seasonings. Yummy! Thank you!
