Chicken & Rice a la emily

One of my most favorite meals is courtesy of my friend Emily. I remember devouring the dish at her apt. years ago and her telling me that her mom used to make it for her family all of the time when they were growing up. Since we've been friends since we were 14 I wondered why, oh why, I was just now discovering this recipe.

Fast forward 5 years and I can still remember this meal. So I did what any self respecting woman does. I called my now married friend and begged her for the recipe. She lovingly obliged and I realized that this is by far one of the easiest meals that I've ever prepared. So with her permission here we go:

  Chicken and Rice a la Emily

Cook Time : 2 1/2 hours


Bone in chicken (8-10 pieces skinless)
Uncle Bens slow cook rice
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of chicken
1 can of water
1 packet of onion soup mix



step 1) Empty rice into a 9x13 pan

step 2) Pour contents of both cans of soup into the 9x13

step 3) Pour 1 can of water in and mix

step 4) Place chicken on top of the rice (If your chicken is not skinless, take skin off)
step 5)Empty the onion soup mix on top of the chicken 
step 6) Cover tightly with foil
step 7) cook at 350 for 2 1/2 hours
The chicken will literally be falling off of the bone when it is done and the rice mix is to die for.
Added bonus, your house smells divine! Let me know what you think if you try it!
