Country Chicken and Rice
1 Hr

It's no wonder one-pot recipes are tops on so many of our lists when it comes to dinnertime solutions. We think the best part of this recipe is that the longer it cooks the better the flavors blend.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (3- to 3-1/2-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups long- or whole-grain rice, rinsed
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot, bring all ingredients except rice to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Cover and allow to boil 35 minutes.
  3. Add rice and cook 25 to 30 minutes, or until rice is tender, no pink remains in chicken, and chicken juices run clear.

Is 6 cups of water correct????

Good morning! Yes, 6 cups of water is correct. You will need that amount to boil the chicken in and cook 2 cups long grain rice. Enjoy!

Seems like this would be very soupy with 6 c water and 2 cans of tomato sauce. The ratio for rice is 2c water to 1c rice.

I made this .My family loved it ,M E TOO ,BECAUSE IT WAS SO EASY .p.s. I used chicken legs .

Made as the recipe calls for, it's a bit bland. So when I made it again I added garlic powder, adobo, a can of drained diced tomatoes, and a jar of green olives and it was delicious!

made this and loved did too!!! thanks

This recipe is just a variation of Chicken Cacciatore.

And your point is???

liked recipe

Add some ONION SOUP DRY MIX along with the 2 cups of water. It gives much more flavor along with the regular onion.

What 2 cups of water? I see the recipe says 6 cups of water . . . but I am sure your idea to add the Onion Soup Dry Mix is a good one!
