Oven Chicken

I'm reposting this recipe because I finally got a picture of it! This recipe is from my sister-in-law Dore and we love it. It has been a family favorite for about the last 9? 10? years. The rice is honestly what makes this casserole - it's so flavorful, and buttery and gorgeous.

Oven Chicken

4 - 5 chicken breasts
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon of pepper
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 cup chopped onion
3 cups chicken broth

Pour melted butter into a 9x13 baking dish. Mix flour, salt, paprika, and pepper on a pie plate or other shallow dish. Dredge chicken in the seasoned flour and place in the baking pan with butter. Bake chicken uncovered at 375 for 30 minutes. Take chicken out of the pan. Add rice, chopped onion, and chicken broth to pan and stir around to get all the yummy brown bits off the bottom mixed in with the rice. Put chicken back in and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes at 375, then take foil off and bake for another 20 minutes.
