What to serve with that Christmas Chicken? Nothing else will do but to make this delectable Savory Rice. The family gobbles this up and I always make enough to send a goody bag home so they have some for the next day It’s so easy, mix everything together and bake! No watching or guesswork involved. Make it with your Chicken recipe. You won’t regret it! It is an old Paula Deen recipe and one we will continue to make. Next time I make it I will add a variety of mushroom types to add a depth of flavor. Experiment with this recipe and make it your own!
