This recipe was the result of a few ingredients I had but no idea what I was going to do with them. It came together with some memories of a greek chicken dish I had been served way back when I was in high school. I added a few things and it became a hit on a cold Sunday afternoon.

    Place in 375 preheated degree oven and cook 45 minutes.

    The chicken on the top should be starting to brown a little and the juices increasing. Now pour in the rice and stir it into the bottom so that it begins to soak up the juices.
