Dump-and-Bake Country Captain Chicken
"There's no prep work necessary for this easy weeknight dinner! My Dump-and-Bake Country Captain Chicken with Rice is an updated shortcut on a Southern classic, and it's ready for the oven in just 10 minutes! Original Country Captain Chicken is a mild stew made with browned chicken pieces, onions, and curry powder. A lot of chefs will add almonds, golden raisins, currants, tomatoes, garlic, and/or bell peppers. It's almost always served over white rice, which is why I baked the rice right into my dish here! In addition to the chicken, curry, and rice, my shortcut Country Captain Chicken includes garlic, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, and mango chutney (as a sweet-and-zesty nod to its Indian heritage)! Of course, you can toss in some golden raisins or sliced almonds of your own, or garnish it with sliced green onions like I do. It's an easy dinner recipe that's hard to mess up, and it's a simple option that I know you'll turn to time and again for a family-friendly weeknight meal. Enjoy, friends!"
