Easy Dutch Oven Chicken and Rice (serves 5)

Recipe from


1 cup long grain white rice

1 ¾ pounds, boneless, skinless, chicken thighs

1 packet dry onion soup mix

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 cup chicken broth or chicken stock

1 cup sour cream


Light 25-35 pieces of charcoal for the Dutch oven. Mix the broth, mushroom soup, and sour cream in a bowl and set aside. Line or spray the bottom of the cast iron Dutch oven pot. Pour 1 cup of dry rice into the bottom of the pot. Layer the chicken pieces on top of the rice. Sprinkle the broth/soup/sour cream mixture on top. Cover the Dutch oven. Place 8 prepared coal briquettes under the pot and put 17 coal briquettes on the lid. Bake for one hour, rotating the lid and pot in the opposite direction every 15 minutes. At the one-hour mark, carefully remove the lid and cut into the chicken to make sure it is done; it should be 165 degrees on a meat thermometer.
