Poule Au Riz

Chicken With Rice

This is another popular and very simple way of cooking chicken. There are various recipes or ways of cooking it, but the final result is about the same.


  • 1 chicken, stock, about 3 ozs. of rice
  • 1 onion, herbs


If a boiling fowl is used, it will have to be cooked longer. A young, plump bird will take about 1 hour. Warm up about ¾ to 1 quart of good veal stock, put the chicken in a large saucepan, add the onion and herbs, cover with the warm stock, bring to the boil, and simmer till the chicken is tender. Half an hour before serving, add the rice. Remove the chicken from the stock, put it on a hot dish, and put the rice around it. Moisten with a little of the stock. For this dish the rice should be quite moist.
