Chicken and Rice

Chicken and Rice |

I didn’t cook very many meals in the kitchen with my mom, but this was one she specifically taught me how to make.Ā  And I miss her.

Every. Single. Time I make it.

It’s comfort food, y’all.

Make a big batch and keep some leftovers for lunch the next day.Ā  You’ll be glad you did.




  1. My mom was a wonderful cook. She taught me how to make potato salad….not a recipe, just her method of making it and what she put into it. I am always asked to bring potato salad, and just like you, I think of her every time I make it. My mom has been with Jesus for 24 years next month and I still miss her every day, but I am so thankful for the things she taught me….in the kitchen and in life. I will never make a pie crust like she did though. I am going to try your recipe for chicken and rice….sounds perfect for these frigid cold days. Happy New Year, Brandy. I love reading about your family. My daughter and her 3 year old little boy live with us…..that is one boy and some days I feel a little (lot) frazzled, so I can barely comprehend 8 children. God surely gives us strength when we need it, doesn’t He?

  2. I am new to The Marathan Mom by way of Pinterest and as a Mom of four I am really enjoying reading your blog. This Chicken and Rice looks wonderful. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks!

  3. Made this today. It was AMAZING! One of my sons has autism–and we eat a lot of gluten free/casein free meals because of that–so it was a perfect meal for our family of six.

  4. This sounds like the perfect comfort food! And no cream of stuff is what my dairy allergy child needs! šŸ™‚
    Will you please share what seasoned salt you use??

    • I grew up with Lawry’s seasoned salt, and still use that from time to time. There is a Cajun spice that is good, too, and even an organic-no-salt seasoning that I buy from Costco, which of course, requires me to add salt. šŸ™‚

    I’m going to try this recipe with quinoa. Looks good!

  6. I just made this for supper tonight, and it is really great. I used carrots instead of celery because that is all I had. This will make the rotation!:)

    I made this for dinner last night, and we all loved it. Such a simple and comforting recipe! The kids and I are excited to have the leftovers for lunch. I will even make this without chicken to serve as a side item. Thanks for the recipe!!

  8. Yummy Yummy Yummy! Thanks so much for this yummy recipe! I made it tonight and I’m can’t stop sampling it before serving it to the whole family! It’s so easy and so yummy! Can I tell you how yummy this is? LOL Thank you. šŸ™‚
