Not your Momma’s Chicken n Rice
I am all about comfort food. There is nothing better than a good roast, or chili or casserole. It is like a little hug with each bite.
Growing up one of my mom’s go to comfort food dishes was chicken n rice. She made it very traditionally with canned cream soup, chicken pieces and white rice and I LOVED it. Now that it is my kitchen and my turn I decided to change it up just a bit…but don’t worry you will still love it.
A little extra flair
To jazz up this chicken n rice I decided to go with a little Asian flair. The seasoning mix is a staple in my recipes with a little addition of cumin for some extra yummy. The real treat though is in the marinade. I love soy sauce and honey but add in some sesame seed oil and rice wine vinegar and that is a party waiting to happen.
Even better you can make this and not order take out….your family will be so impressed!
One pot and done
This time of year can be especially busy. The kids are just back in school. Work is getting busy again and there are practices for dance, band or sports on top of everything else. Don’t worry this chicken & rice is all made in one pot, making this a perfect dish for a busy week.
I am all about only having a few things to clean up after dinner.

White or Brown?
So I am a HUGE fan of brown rice. If I had my choice I would eat brown rice each and every time over white rice. You can use whatever you prefer though. The white rice will cook quicker, and absorb a little more of the flavor of the sauce, but the brown rice is really good as well. It is all your choice.
Get your dinner on with this delicious and updated chicken and rice!!
