Need help with recipe

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My mom used to make a wonderful rice casserole over the holidays. Unfortunately, like many family recipes it was never written down and was lost when she passed away. My Dad and I are going to try and recreate it for Christmas dinner, and I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has made this dish.

It includes cooked white rice, cooked wild rice, pineapples, green peppers and onions. It's also a baked dish. Can anyone help?

Hugs,
Elizabeth

My mom has a recipe like that but she won't be home until later this evening. So if Elizabeth doesn't have what you are looking for, let me know and I will put in a call to the mom.

ok Christy will do. I saw Abby's post as well and by the time I get mine to you it will be +/- 11-12 midnight your time. And of course, it's important as you're preparing for the holiday....so maybe Abby could send hers too? options are nice to have! What daya think?

Well, I don't need the recipe *tonight*, so late is OK. And that's a great idea-Abby, can you get your mother's recipe for me too?

Try putting the ingredients into Google with the word recipe and see what comes up. That's how I find recipes.

I called my mom and told her what I wanted. That sent her into a tizzy about how close it is to Christmas and here I expected her to dig through years of recipes to find that when she didn't know when the last time was that she fixed it and don't I have a recipe similar in one of my cookbooks. Sheeeeshhhhhhh, caught her at the wrong time (grrr hiss hiss)!

Anyways, I did some searching and heres what I came up with. This has chicken in it, but I would imagine you could make it without the chicken and cut down on the prep time as well. It has all the basic ingredients you listed. I copied it out of one of my recipe books. Sounds pretty yummy.

PINEAPPLE-CHICKEN AND RICE BAKE
INGREDIENTS
2 pounds meaty chicken pieces
(breasts, thighs, and drumsticks), skinned
½ cup chopped onion
1 large red sweet pepper,
cut into ¾-inch squares
1 8-ounce can pineapple chunks (juice pack)
¼ cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2/3 cup long grain rice
1 cup chicken broth
Parsley sprigs or paprika


DIRECTIONS
Place chicken pieces, onion, and red pepper into a large plastic bag set in a deep bowl. In a small mixing bowl stir together undrained pineapple, orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, and cloves. Pour pineapple mixture over chicken mixture in bag. Seal bag. Marinate the mixture in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Before baking, drain chicken, reserving marinade and vegetables. Set chicken aside. Place uncooked rice in a 12x7½x2-inch baking dish. Stir chicken broth and the reserved marinade-vegetable mixture into rice. Top with chicken pieces. Cover with foil. Bake in a 375° oven about 1 hour or till chicken and rice are tender. Garnish with parsley or sprinkle with paprika.

Makes 6 servings.


TIME
Advance Preparation Time: 15 min.
Marinating Time: 4 hrs.
Final Preparation Time: 1 hr. 10 min.

WOW! This totally puts my recipe under the table. This is much, much better. Mine was very simple, but the secret was butter and sour cream, as it gives a smooth creamy consistency, if that option is desired. Chicken broth 3/4 c. instead and then 1/4 sour cream and 2 tbsp butter, instead. I think I'll keep Abby's!

It sounds pretty darn good. My family would be impressed to know I made it and it wasn't from a box!

That would be my little love biscuit Sam..aka Mommy's sweet pea. He's the one that started the whole mess of the rest of the crew! I have a weak spot for tabbies as well. The first cat I ever had was a tabby.

Well he is just so nice. All of them are VERY cute. I'v eonly had one, and that was our beloved Freddie (RIP 11/09/03). We hope to get another sometime in the Spring......Sasha, too. He was very attached.
