Hi, it’s Kristi in the Rada Cutlery kitchen, and today I’m going to make a dish called “No Peek” Chicken. It’s called this because keeping the foil tight on the pan is what makes it so delicious.

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9” x 13” dish with cooking spray, unless you’re using stoneware such as the Rada Rectangular Baker. Place 1 cup long grain rice on the bottom of the dish and cover with ½ cup water and ¾ package of onion soup mix. In a large bowl, mix together 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can cream of celery soup, 1 clove crushed garlic, 1 teaspoon chopped parsley, and 1 teaspoon of Worcester sauce.

Cut 1 chicken into 8 pieces and place over the rice layer. Pour mixture over the chicken. Sprinkle with paprika and remaining onion soup mix. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. Don’t peek!
