A Man And An Easy One-Dish Comfort Food Plan

It's grey out, local roads were absolutely covered with ice this morning, and it's time for some comfort food for dinner and I'm cooking.

Since I'm cooking it needs be simple.

Chicken Cream of Mushroom Soup and Rice simple.

You'll need:

1 deep oven safe baking dish with a lid
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup;
1 pack Chicken drumsticks;
1 cup rice;
paprika and pepper;
water; and

An oven pre-heated to 375 degrees.

Got it? Ok, on to make it:

First add a cup of rice to the dish.

Next, add the can of soup all nice and gloppy. Keep the can for the next step.

Add a can and a half of water, and use a spoon to scrape out any remaining soup.

Add a good solid shake of paprika and some freshly ground pepper and stir.

Then add the drumsticks and cover with the liquid.

Note that the package claims there's five drumsticks inside, yet there's only four in the pack, so someone can't even count to five out there...

Cover the baking dish and place in oven.

It should be done in about 50 minutes. The rice will absorb the liquid and the chicken will be nice and ready.

An easy, simple, comfort food for those grey days.

There could be a PBS or Food Network show in this for you: "Chef Kendal Cooks Comfort:

Hmm, maybe if as part of the show we have to shoot the chicken first...I think you may be on to something.
