Easy Baked Chicken And Rice (Recipe)

Another super simple meal idea for when you just have no idea what to feed the family. This can be whipped up in an hour and the recipe claims it feeds 4 but of course, that depends on who’s eating it 😉

What you’re going to need:

  • 2 pounds chicken pieces or a couple of chicken breasts (I cut mine in half to make them thinner so they cook faster)
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup rice, uncooked
  • 2 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • pinch of cayenne
  1. Brown the chicken pieces on all sides in hot oil. Put in a casserole dish.
  2. Sprinkle uncooked rice over and around the chicken.
  3. Mix together the boiling water, garlic, salt, pepper, turmeric and cayenne. Pour over chicken and rice.
  4. Cover and cook in a 350degree oven for about 45 minutes or until chicken is tender and rice is cooked.

And that’s it! My kids like to put a little soya sauce on the rice for a bit more flavor. I like to serve this with oven roasted parmesan snap peas or some green beans.

Hope you have a really great weekend!

Hi! First off, thanks for popping in! I started this blog for a number of reasons and if you look through the posts you will see all sorts of randomness. I'm a mom of 3 living in a small village in Saskatchewan. We are a household that is on the go a lot with the nearest city an hour away. We love reading, going for walks, playing at as many parks as we can find and just hanging out.
I struggle with anxiety, depression, & ptsd but strive to find the positive in the every day ordinary moments and thank the good Lord for all the blessings I have :)
My Mental Health journey has recently reminded me of my love for all kinds of art, writing poetry being the first to reintroduce myself to. It's hard to open up and let those feelings flow after being buried so deep for so long.
I have a little bit of everything here so I won't take it personally if you don't like or connect to everything I write, but I do really appreciate you being here and sharing in this journey of me re-discovering my true self through words and thoughts that don't always make sense to anyone but myself :D
