One Dish Dinner : Spiced Chicken and Rice

Spiced Chicken and Rice
1 whole chicken, cut into quarters or eighths ( its better with the skin on,but you can take the skin off if you like.)
1 1/2 cups rice; brown or white
3 1/2 cups water
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder

Pour rice and water into a large roasting pan. ( You can use an aluminum pan instead, but it will take at least another hour to bake.) Arrange chicken pieces on top of rice. Sprinkle with seasonings. Cover and bake at 375° for 1 hour. 


  1. I love the simplicity of this dish. I discovered that you can do this with pasta too. I cook up a package of spaghetti and put it in a pan with the chicken on top. The spaghetti gets flavored and a little crispy. Delicious.

  2. Mommy's famous roasted chicken... all the boys love this one! Is it one of Big D's faves?

  3. Thanks Rivki- Noodles sound really good! I'll have to try that- you put raw chicken on top of cooked noodles and then bake it?
    Diane- you bet! Right up there under spaghetti and meatballs. Maybe even a tie...

  4. This looks so warm and filling! yummmmy! I am craving rice and a salad now =)

  7. and i just put this recipe in the oven! my first time puting raw rice with out cooking ! i hope it works! lol ps in the picture ur rice look real small- what type is it

  8. Dont worry, its really easy- it will work. If its watery, just stick it back in for a half hour. At the risk of sounding completely ignorant- I have no idea what kind of rice it is- just plain white rice...
