Smothered Chicken over Wild Rice

An Oldie from the 1930’s with a Millennial veggie twist

This recipe goes way back in my family to my Mama’s childhood when recipes were simple and ingredients were on hand in the pantry and/or home grown. The original ingredients were one whole cut up chicken, flour, salt, pepper, and water.

Farm house in Copiah County, MS

Mama grew up on a farm in Copiah County Mississippi during the depression. This was a standby family recipe in the summer when the hens were too big to fry. When I was growing up, this was comfort food at it’s best. Mama always served the chicken and gravy over white rice, but I revised the recipe to include peppers, onions, and mushrooms and served it over wild rice. Jeff absolutely loved it and is hoping to see it on our evening menu again in the near future. Since it was easy and quick to prepare, I’m sure he will.
