I remember Mom making this all the time when I was little, but I don't think I've had it since she moved to New York. This was definitely my first attempt making it.

The recipe as Mom gave it to me is in bold print, with changes that I made this time in regular print after the original. Any changes for next time will be after the instructions.

Chicken & Yellow Rice
  • 1 fryer, cut up I couldn't find anything labled a "fryer" at the store, so I used a "Grade A Chicken, split." It was 3.9 lbs.
  • 1/3 cup margarine I used butter, and rounded down to 5 TBSP (since 1/3 of a cup is a pain to cut from a stick)
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder I used a heaping 1/2 teaspoon. There's no such thing as too much garlic.
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt I used seasoned salt.
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper I didn't measure this, just shook it generously over the dish.
  • 1 teaspoon tumeric
  • 2.5 cups boiling water I used a pint of my homemade stock, and enough water to complete the measure.

Brown chicken in margarine. Place in a shallow 2 qt casserole dish. Sprinkle rice & spices over chicken. Mix the water with the pan juices & pour over chicken. Cover & bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

********************
Notes for next time:
  • That chicken was not the right choice. The amount was OK, but I don't remember that many small bones when Mom used to make it. I'm not sure what I should have used instead.
  • Some of the rice was underdone. I think if I had used the right size casserole dish (I used a 3 qt dish) it would have worked better. Either that or more stock/water. Or maybe both.
