Chicken and rice is one of those great dishes that you put in a little prep and then you put it in the oven and really forget about it. This is a nice spin on the traditional chicken and rice. If you like French Onion soup you will really enjoy this dish. I was told this was a keeper. The leftovers were good too. Sometimes that is important around here. We don't always have leftovers but when we do I like for them to be eaten. Give this a try soon. I think your family will enjoy it.
I got to use some of my fresh parsley from my herb garden on top. If you don't have any fresh parsley it won't make a difference in the taste. It basically just makes it look pretty.
