Baked Chicken and TJ Batsmati Rice Medley

My mom used to make this for us growing up and I would always ask for it. I adapted the recipe by using TJ's rice medley and chicken stock. 

Chicken Thighs or drumsticks (skinned) 4-5 depending on size
Montreal steak seasoning
1/2 a large sweet onion - sliced
Pats of butter
2 3/4 cups Chicken broth or stock
1 1/2 cups Trader Joes Batsmati Rice Medley

Here are the ingredients - so simple!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use a dutch oven or pampered chef deep dish baker. Add 1 1/2 cups batsmati rice medley to the bottom of the baker. Pour chicken broth over rice medley. Add 1-2 pats of butter to the rice mixture and sprinkle with steak seasoning. Place chicken thighs/drumsticks over rice mixture. Sprinkle with more steak seasoning. Add sliced onions then 4 pats of butter (see picture below). Cover baker and cook for 1 hr or until chicken is cooked thoroughly. You MUST cover the dish or the rice will not cook properly. Enjoy!
The finished product - liquid absorbed and chicken fully cooked!
