Chicken leg quarters baked with rice in a creamy broccoli mixture. I dislike most convenience food recipes, but I feel that this one’s a winner, as it’s not only fast but healthy too!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) package instant long grain and wild rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Place chicken quarters in a 9x13 inch baking dish and bake in preheated oven, covered, for 45 minutes.
  3. 3 Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine rice and seasoning packages, water, soup, sour cream, crushed garlic, minced garlic and broccoli. Mix well.
  4. 4 Remove chicken to a platter and drain oil. Spread rice mixture in the bottom of the baking dish, then arrange chicken on top of rice. Bake uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes, or until wild rice is opened up and liquid is absorbed.

  6. This recipe was very good and my boyfriend liked it. I will make it again. Like everyone said, it needs only 3/4 cup water, a little more rice, and I also added more broccoli and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar. Turned out really good!!
  7. If you make this dish, reduce the water to 1/2-1 cup of water or it will take 3 hours to cook down like mine did. Other then that, my clan loved it...or it could be because they were starving because of the time it took to cook. Either way, I'll try this one more time. - Read more ...
