Quick Baked Chicken and Rice

Having raised 2 children as a single mother while working full time, I learned to love quick and easy recipes. Not much has changed, I still work full time, and now that my children are all grown up, I decided to start blogging. So yes, I still appreciate a fast and delicious meal, and of course I will share it here with you!


What you’ll need:

  • 5 chicken drum sticks
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Adobo (or plain salt)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the spices together and rub them into the chicken. Use the the ones mentioned above and add or replace your favorite ones. be sure to keep the Adobo/salt in the recipe. Place the rice in and oven proof baking tray. Add the chicken broth and water slowly. Cut the 2 tbsp of butter into 8 pieces and place on top of the water/rice mixture.

Place the chicken drum sticks on top of the water/rice mix. Cover the baking tray with aluminum foil and cook for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let it stand for 5 minutes, then remove the chicken and mix the rice with the seasoning. Add additional salt if needed.
