There’s something about chicken and rice that just goes together perfectly! It’s kind of like peanut butter and jelly or crackers and cheese. It just works. And pretty much anyone loves the combination!
One of my favorite ways to make chicken and rice is this simple one pan dish. I honestly can’t think of an easier recipe.
You literally just mix a few ingredients together, put them in a baking dish and top it with season salt sprinkled chicken pieces. After baking for an hour and half you have a yummy dinner ready for you to enjoy!
I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical the first time I tried this recipe because I thought it sounded way too basic. I was worried that it would be bland and tasteless, but ultimately the easiness of the recipe convinced me to give it a try.
And I was pleasantly surprised to find that the finished dish is quite flavorful! Comfort food, really. And any dish that gets the approval of the whole family as this one did, is always a winner!
Actually this is one of my go-to dishes for Sunday lunch, too. Because it’s so quick to throw together, I can easily wait to make it until Sunday morning, which I love.
I just put it in the oven on time bake before we head off to church, then when we get home, we are welcomed by the wonderful, delicious aroma of lunch all ready and waiting for us.
