Chicken and Rice

Chicken and Rice.  Comforting warm food for a chilly day.  I have been making this Cook's Illustrated recipe of French Roasted Chicken for years.  It's an easy meal prepared in the Dutch oven and leaves just enough leftover chicken to make a soup or stew.


I linked the recipe for the actual dinner above (click on French Chicken) so I won't repeat it here.  For this soup/stewy version I took the leftover chicken and vegetables and added sauteed onions and garlic.  Then I poured a little more broth in the pot as well as a quarter to half cup of milk.


This was one of those days I was inspired to make bread as well so a freshly baked baguette was a rich accompaniment.  Rachel ray would make what she named Stoup.  Thicker than soup, thinner that stew.  that's what this was.  We try and make the most of our leftovers and not waste anything.

  1. Looks really good! I make chicken and yellow rice a lot. The last few days I've been craving chicken & dumplings, so I bought the ingredients yesterday and plan on making it this weekend.

  2. Your comfort food does indeed look comforting! I made something like that recently too, using up a few miscellaneous leftovers that were really great together.

  3. I've made a few soups in the last couple of days too.

    Chicken soup sounds good today.

  4. Wish I had some of that chicken and rice right now.

  5. It's definitely soup weather. I love being creative with leftover roast chicken. Yum!

  6. I'm all about soups and stews and even stoups at this time of year. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  7. I'm with you, and it's probably what I'll do with my bit of left-over Crack Chicken in the freezer. Crack Chicken Soup!

  8. My husband would love that chicken and rice dish! Looks very comforting

  9. This does look like the perfect comfort food! Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week. ;-)

  10. I have been making so much soup lately. It's easy, fast and delicious. I used a faux rotisserie chicken recipe for some chicken veg soup. Mine was not as delicious as yours looks!!! :) I should have made it a cream soup loke yours.
