I love this easy night recipe that tastes like it’s been cooking all day. The rice combines with the onion, mushroom and soup flavor and tastes wonderfully creamy. The chicken cooks to perfection and the skin gets just the perfect amount of crispiness on top, not that I eat the skin or anything, ha!
For this recipe I used bone in thighs and brown rice. But you could use any cut of chicken or any kind of rice
Ingredients: 1 4pk bone in chicken thighs, 1 small onion, 1 cup uncooked rice, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 container mushrooms, salt and pepper to taste.
Place the chicken skin up in a large deep pan
salt and pepper both sides
Add 1 cup of uncooked rice to bottom of pan, mix until evenly distributed, be sure the rice gets to the bottom of the pan and not on top of the chicken, otherwise it won’t cook properly.
In a large measuring cup out cream of mushroom, and water
until about 2 1/2 cups of liquid, then pour over rice and chicken
Add mushrooms and slice onions
Bake @ 350 for about 1- 1/2 hours depending on using white or brown rice
Taste to see if rice is done, and look at the beautiful color of the crispy skins, yummmm
