My front porch set for fall visitors…If you saw my last post, then you saw the morning glory vine on the front porch, in which this photo is taken from…a comfy place to sit on a sunny fall day.A closer look at the fall arrangement…And an even closer look, with white and deep red mums, a pale peach color pumpkin in the center, cabbage plants are worked in with pumpkins and large gourd…
Chicken and Rice Casserole with Vegetables…An easy one pan meal for a cold night…it will warm up your house with an aroma of Thanksgiving…
All the ingredients arranged to prepare this meal…
ONE PAN MEAL…CHICKEN AND RICE CASSEROLE WITH VEGETABLES
1. Any chicken pieces that you like…I used 2 boneless breasts, 4 boneless thighs and 3 chicken legs, all skinless.
2. 1 1/2 cups of brown rice
3. 3 cups chicken broth
4. 6 carrot sticks, cut into large chunks
5. 6 celery stalks, cut into large chunks
6. 1 large onion, sliced into wedges and separated
7. 5 oz bag of fresh baby spinach
8. 2 tablespoons of Bell’s Seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Scatter rice on the bottom of a 13″ X 9″ dish that has been sprayed with vegetable spray, layer chicken on top, scatter the vegetables between and on top of chicken, pour in chicken broth and sprinkle seasonings on top. Wrap tightly with foil that has been sprayed with vegetable spray so it won’t stick to the top. Cook in oven for 1 hour, open top carefully and spread spinach on top, cook for another 15-20 minutes or until rice is soft and creamy and chicken is cooked but moist. Let stand for 5 minutes, turn back the foil and enjoy!!
