When you want to combine yesterday's flavors with today's "easy," try this one. It'll taste like you spent hours at the stove like Mama did, but not with this one. Uh! Uh!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 (14-1/2 ounce) can whole tomatoes, undrained and broken up
  • 1/2 pound processed cheese spread (like Velveeta), cubed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
  • 1 chicken (2-1/2 to 3 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
     
  2. In a greased 9- x 13-inch baking pan, mix water, rice, tomatoes, cheese spread, onion, garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Top mixture with chicken pieces and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and remaining Italian seasoning.
     
  3. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until chicken is fork-tender and no pink remains. Remove from oven and let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
