My Grandpa always made this chicken and rice dish called Chicken and Rice Roger because it was cheap and delicious. I took his original recipe and tweaked it to have a Mexican flair but still keep it frugal for feeding a large family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
- 1 10x15 Glass baking dish
- 1 cup raw rice
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 2 cup chicken broth
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 8 pieces chicken thighs on the bone
- 1/4 cup canned diced green chiles
- 2 diced chipotles in adobo
- 2 limes juiced
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- Layer the raw rice, onion, and raw chicken in the casserole dish.
- Mix together the remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir until combined.
- Pour liquid over the chicken.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.
- Dish up and serve with a salad or your favorite veggie side.
Hey Christine! Any suggestions to adapt this to an instant pot instead of the oven? I have no AC so the oven is off limits for me in the summer 🥵
This was really good just have to cut down the spice for my taste.
Hey Christine I was just wondering what the recipe for the Chicken and Rice Roger’ would look like without the Mexican flair? It sounds good but I just don’t care for Mexican food. But I really want to try your Grandpa’s recipe. Thanks
She has tbe original recipe in another video. If you type Roger rice and chicken fit frugal mom, it should pop up the video!
This is so gooood! It instantly became a family favorite! 🙂
Hi Christine! I’ve tried this recipe once and loved it. My husband really really likes it but this time we’re adding spicy sausage and shrimp to make like a cajun type dish. I didn’t have canned diced tomatoes so I just used jarred spaghetti sauce and it still tasted great! So simple thank you!
