Baked Chicken #2

on October 2, 2018

Today’s recipe for Baked Chicken #2 comes from the back of one of Grandma’s recipes. Actually, it was on the back of her recipe for Baked Chicken that I made several years ago. I was looking back at some of those past recipes, and realized that I never made the second recipe on the back of that card. I’m putting this one under the hotdish category, because it uses the same principle – meat, rice, and cream of something soup. We’re getting closer to comfort food weather, and these are necessary comfort food recipes: Baked Chicken, Easy Chicken and Rice, and this one. This one would be a perfect Sunday dinner. It’s easy, it’s no-fuss, and it’s delicious!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Baked Chicken #2

Mix in large bowl:

1 cup uncooked rice

1 can cream of Chicken Soup

1 can Cream of Celery Soup

1 Tablespoon parsley leaves (I used dried)

1 soup cans water

Put into greased 9″ x 13″ pan.

Top with:

1 cut-up fryer chicken (or whole cut-up chicken), seasoned with salt and pepper or seasoned salt

Cover with foil.

Bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours (DO NOT PEEK). Next time I’d bake about 1 1/2 hours and then take the foil off and let it go the last half hour to brown the chicken a little bit.

Mix up the rice and soups – and yes, you need to use regular uncooked rice.

The soup/rice mixture goes into the pan, and then on goes the chicken (this chicken had gigantic pieces, so we cut the breasts in two). I also seasoned it with a bit of seasoned salt, because I had a feeling that this would be a little pale after being baked and covered with foil.

After baking, I took off the foil and let it bake another 20 minutes or so, just to brown it up a bit (I was right – it did come out looking a little pale), but that made it somewhat overdone. The chicken was nice and tender, but the rice was overdone and a little mushy. I’d take the foil off earlier next time so the total baking time would stay the same.

Oh yes – total comfort food!

This WAS the perfect Sunday dinner. I just added a bit of green (peas), and it made for an excellent comfort food meal. Incredibly easy and incredibly delicious – this Baked Chicken #2 is incredibly comforting!
