Description

Indulge in the comforting flavors of tender chicken thighs perfectly seasoned and baked atop a bed of aromatic rice.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Begin by warming your oven to a cozy 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small dish, melt the bouillon with a tablespoon of water to create a concentrated flavor base.
  2. Take a bowl of medium size and toss in the uncooked rice, chopped onion, and a dab of butter. Pour in the bouillon concoction along with a generous 2 cups of water, giving everything a good mix to ensure the flavors meld. Transfer this mixture into a baking dish measuring 9×13 inches, spreading it out evenly.
  3. Carefully arrange the chicken thighs atop the bed of seasoned rice, and sprinkle them with a dash of Italian seasoning for that extra touch of herby goodness. Slide the dish into your preheated oven and let it bake. You’ll want to give it about 35 to 45 minutes, or until you see the chicken thighs cooked through to the point where the meat is not pink near the bone, and the natural juices are clear and sizzling. The exact time might vary depending on the size of the chicken thighs.

Notes

  • – For a golden-brown finish on your chicken, you can remove the foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.
    – Feel free to customize the dish by adding your favorite herbs or vegetables.
    – Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Can I use brown rice instead of white rice?

Yes, but you may need to adjust the cooking time and liquid ratio as brown rice typically takes longer to cook.

What can I use instead of cream of mushroom soup?

Cream of chicken or cream of celery soup can be good substitutes if you’re not a fan of mushrooms.

How do I know when the chicken is fully cooked?

The chicken is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C) when checked with a meat thermometer.
