    Here is our favorite chicken recipe.

    1/2 c. flour
    1 tea. salt
    1/2 tea. pepper
    10 chicken thighs
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 c. un cooked rice (i like to use brown rice)
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, undrained
    2 chicken bouillon cubes
    2 c. boiling water

    Combine flour, salt and pepper; coat chicken pieces. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken in oil. Place rice in an ungreased 13x9x 2in baking dish. Sprinkle with onion and garlic; top with mushrooms. Dissolve bouillon in boiling water; pour over all. Place chicken pieces on top. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until chicken juices run clear and rice is tender.

    I have also made it useing cream of mushroom and cream of celery soup.

    Sounds delicious. I always save stock to cook my rice in. Chicken and rice is a big favorite around here.

    I made my version of this the other night. Hubby is not a chicken fan but he scarfed it down.

    My is here.
    2 chicken legs
    1 cup of uncocked rice
    2 garlic cloves
    poultry seasoning
    garlic salt
    1 can cream of roasted garlic mushroom soup.
    chcken stock

    I cooked rice before hand with both cloves of garlic a little poutry seasoning and some dried rosmary.

    After it was done I put in in a 9x5 pan and added the soup which I mixed a little milk till it was creamy enough. Turn about to be a can worth of milk to get enough luquid. Also added chicken stock just enough to make enough luquid. I added more poultry seasoning, garlic salt, pepper and a little bit more rosemary to the rice. Stired it up well till all mixed then spread out in pan and put chicken legs on top. Sprinkled legs with more PS and rosmary and put some of the rice mix on top of them. Cooked that at 350 for 45 mins covered then uncovered for another 15 to 20 mins to brown a little.

    My chicken was still partialy frozen so you might want to cut it just to the 30 to 45 mins. ** I do not measure my seasoning so do that to taste.
