How to Make Smothered Chicken with Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350

    Prepare rice according to package..enough to cover the entire bottom of a deep 9x13 glass baking dish (3 servings)..in the meantime, in a large skillet heat enough Olive Oil to cover the bottom..coat chicken thighs on both sides with Olive oil as well. Use desired amounts of salt, pepper and garlic powder to flavor. When the Olive Oil is hot, turn heat down to medium to medium-high and add minced garlic to the oil. Let Garlic sautee in the oil for about 1 min, then add Chicken..skin down in the pan. Brown for 15 minutes each side until chicken is golden brown (this locks the flavor into the chicken itself). While chicken is cooking, prepare Cream of Mushroom soup by adding 2-3 cans to a bowl, 1 1/2 cups milk, salt/pepper to taste , garlic powder, 1 tsp minced garlic and finally sliced fresh mushrooms. With a paper towel, brush a small amount of Olive oil around the bottom and sides of the baking dish...add rice and spread out to cover the bottom..add chicken to the baking dish on top of the rice and pour sauce mixture over all. Cover with foil and cook for about 45-50 minutes...uncover, and cook for an additional 20 minutes.

    I like to make fresh rolls with it..sometimes I'll make my own from scratch, and sometimes I'll buy that Rhodes frozen white roll dough and let it rise all day... A fresh roll with butter really just completes the dish!

    Serves 4-8 depending on the household appetite!

    Enjoy!
