Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken in pot, cover with water and bring to boil removing any scum from the top.
  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook till tender-remove when cooked through, and reserve liquid to cook rice in.
  3. When chicken is cooked, melt butter in a metal baking pan, and fry the finely chopped onion till transparent.
  4. Add the rice and fry it for a minute, being careful not to burn it.
  5. Add 6- 7 cups of chicken broth or stock and bring to the boil--you may want to use the liquid that you boiled the chicken in.
  6. Place chicken pieces on top of rice.
  7. You can also place a couple of tomatoes cut in half with the cut side up in the baking dish.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the stock is absorbed and rice is tender.
