I often do different variations of Baked Chicken & Rice. Here is a few different ways I do and some of my favorites.
I first prep my chicken in a boiling pot of water that barely covers the chicken so I can make some broth off of it. You don't have to boil it long, just enough to make broth because the chicken will be baked. I at least set 2 cups of broth back for the Rice Prep.
I then prep my rice in a rice steamer with the Broth and different variations of ingredients that will be listed above.
After I cook the Rice and Boil the Chicken. I layer the bottom of the Baking Pan with the Rice Mixture and layer some over the chicken and let it bake for at least 45 minutes on 375 in a 13x9 casserole pan.
