This recipe comes from a book entitled God Save The Sweet Potato Queens.
This recipe comes from a book entitled God Save The Sweet Potato Queens. It is a sequel to The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love. They are both extremely funny books (though with some coarse language and adult topics) written by Jill Conner Brown, a woman from Jackson, Mississippi. Both contain a short chapter with recipes. This recipe is entitled "Death Chicken" because she writes that it makes for good "funeral food." When you see how fattening it is you will realize that it may hasten your own funeral.
List of Ingredients
8-10 slices bacon
1 cup long grain rice, uncooked
1 fryer chicken, cut up
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup water
Pinch of nutmeg
1 tsp. oregano
2 heaping Tblsp. parsley flakes
Line a 9x13 casserole with uncooked bacon (I used about 8 - 10 slices - I also greased the pan first). Pour 1 cup of uncooked rice over the bacon. Put skin-on, bone-in chicken pieces of your choice on top of the rice. Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika. Whisk together 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 1 cup of water, some garlic salt, a pinch of nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of oregano, and 2 heaping Tablespoons of parsley flakes. Pour over the chicken. Cover with HEAVY (it matters) aluminum foil and bake for 2 hours at 300 degrees with no peeking.
