I was in the mood for something that was really comforting that I wouldn’t have to watch and I decided on Chicken and rice smothered in mushrooms. I’ve made this with wild rice and it’s wonderful, however, today I made it with brown rice.
Here’s what I did: In a large skillet brown the chicken on all sides, I used chicken breasts, add 2 cups of mushrooms and few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, and a few sliced garlic cloves with salt and pepper to taste. Put a lid on the skillet and put in the oven at 300 degrees. Meanwhile make the rice, and brown rice usually takes 40-45 minutes.
Once the rice is done, remove the chicken from the oven, put the chicken and mushroom sauce into a bowl. Pour the rice into the skillet and stir it to pick up some of the flavors in the bottom of the skillet. Place the chicken on top, pouring the mushroom sauce over the top. Ooooh, the chicken is tender and the flavors are amazing. I know this is not really a summer dish, but it was the thing for today…totally worth it!!
