"Don't Peek" Chicken

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

It doesn't get much easier than this one-pot recipe. You've only got one dish to clean tonight and remember, don't peek while this is cooking -- it'll be worth the wait!

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 1 hr 15 min

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of celery soup
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix (from a 2-ounce box)
  • 1 soup can cold water
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
  • Paprika for sprinkling
  • What To Do:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.  

  • In a large bowl, mix together rice, soups, soup mix, water, garlic, parsley, and Worcestershire sauce.  

  • Pour mixture into prepared pan. Press chicken into mixture. Sprinkle with paprika, then cover tightly with aluminum foil.  

  • Bake 1-1/4 hours. Do NOT open cover (not even to peek!) during baking.
  • Notes:

  • Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley before serving for an impressive finishing touch.

  • This is great made ahead and rewarmed in the oven or microwave. For a different taste treat, why not try adding some carrot or celery chunks or using flavored rice? And remember, bottled garlic is a wonderful time-saver.
