      MY MOTHER USED TO ROAST THE CHICKEN IN THE OVEN JUST WITH SALT AND PEPPER AND WHEN JUST ABOUT DONE ADD WATER TO MAKE A BROTH WITH ALL THE GOOD JUICES FROM THE CHICKEN.  SHE WOULD THEN ADD THE RICE AND COOK IN THE OVEN UNTIL MOST OF THE BROTH WAS ABSORBED.  SHE WOULD SOMETIMES ADD A TOUCH OF GROUND CLOVES AND NUTMEG.  I STILL LIKE IT THAT WAY, OF COURSE SHE HAD HER OWN CHICKENS SHE WOULD BUTCHER FRESH,  "A FAT HEN SHE WOULD SAY".  MAYBE THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE.

       

      BUT I TOO LIKE TO MAKE THE CHICKEN AND RICE WITH THE MUSHROOM SOUP.

      Although I don't consider it Czech, usually when I make a chicken and rice casserole, I use cream of celery and/or cream of mushroom soup. That could be your missing ingredient.

        But you can spice it up some with store bought chicken.  Add a touch of poultry seasoning, garlic, and salt free butter to give the broth a touch of richness.

              WE grew our own maize, corn etc. and dad had a grain mill which we made our own feed for the chickens, pigs and some for the cattle.  MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WERE REMINISCING THE OTHER DAY ABOUT THIS , HOW MUCH FUN THIS WASN'T (HARVESTING THE GRAIN AND PUTTING INTO THE GRAIN BIN AND GROUNDING THE GRAIN

               

              Mom raised chickens for eggs and eating.  The butchering days weren't fun either.  we would kill 25 to 50 on a Saturday and pluck and process.  I usually couldn't eat chicken a couple of weeks after that.

                    WE grew our own maize, corn etc. and dad had a grain mill which we made our own feed for the chickens, pigs and some for the cattle.  MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WERE REMINISCING THE OTHER DAY ABOUT THIS , HOW MUCH FUN THIS WASN'T (HARVESTING THE GRAIN AND PUTTING INTO THE GRAIN BIN AND GROUNDING THE GRAIN

                     

                    Mom raised chickens for eggs and eating.  The butchering days weren't fun either.  we would kill 25 to 50 on a Saturday and pluck and process.  I usually couldn't eat chicken a couple of weeks after that.

                    Sharon, That does sound good.  Yes, my Grandmamma said the fatter the chicken the better the broth.  When we lived in Caldwell, we raised chickens.  They were feed milo. paulasmaggie.

                    MY MOTHER USED TO ROAST THE CHICKEN IN THE OVEN JUST WITH SALT AND PEPPER AND WHEN JUST ABOUT DONE ADD WATER TO MAKE A BROTH WITH ALL THE GOOD JUICES FROM THE CHICKEN.  SHE WOULD THEN ADD THE RICE AND COOK IN THE OVEN UNTIL MOST OF THE BROTH WAS ABSORBED.  SHE WOULD SOMETIMES ADD A TOUCH OF GROUND CLOVES AND NUTMEG.  I STILL LIKE IT THAT WAY, OF COURSE SHE HAD HER OWN CHICKENS SHE WOULD BUTCHER FRESH,  "A FAT HEN SHE WOULD SAY".  MAYBE THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE.

                     

                    BUT I TOO LIKE TO MAKE THE CHICKEN AND RICE WITH THE MUSHROOM SOUP.

                    Although I don't consider it Czech, usually when I make a chicken and rice casserole, I use cream of celery and/or cream of mushroom soup. That could be your missing ingredient.

When done, take out the chick and use a potato masher to mash up the veggies then add the deboned chicken and rice. Simmer to supremacy. It'll never be Granny's on that wood stove with her garden veggies, but it'll do. Especially when little ones have a cold. We've all heard of "Jewish Penicillin" (noodle soup), well, I tell people that is my "Czech penicillin".

                          When I was a little tyke, many, many moons ago, when we would go to my Grandparents Fric's house for dinner, she would always seem to have a chicken and rice dinner.  At that time I didn't really care for it that much because it had these seeds in it and a different taste.  A few years ago when remembering those dinners I tried to recall what gave the chicken/rice that flavor and the best I could come up with is Caraway seeds.  I don't know what Grandma Fric's recipe was but caraway seed gave the flavor I recalled and now love.  You may want to try it.

                                  Thank You Judy.  I thought poultry seasoning was just for dressing.  I will try that.  paulasmaggie

                                  That really is the secret to good chicken and rice!  A home grown, range free chicken!
                                   
                                  But you can spice it up some with store bought chicken.  Add a touch of poultry seasoning, garlic, and salt free butter to give the broth a touch of richness.

                                  Although I don't consider it Czech, usually when I make a chicken and rice casserole, I use cream of celery and/or cream of mushroom soup. That could be your missing ingredient.

                                      My mom was amazing how fast she could wring their necks. She learned from her grandmother. Us "kids", even when we were grown, tried hard to be gone somewhere when she did it, but she was fast.
                                       
                                       We never had very many chickens--just the ones the television companies would buy and leave for us as a "gift" after they filmed or shot TV shows or movies at our ranch.  We would keep them until they stopped laying eggs and then mom would get tired of them messing on our porch (they were free range even though we had nesting boxes and a chicken house that we didn't use for chickens.  The one thing that I'll always be able to remember is the gross smell that came from the big cooking pots where she put them to par-boil before we had to pick the pin feathers off of them.  I hated that task.  We always groaned when a company left live chickens for us.  We knew that our shoveling and cleaning up after the chickens was about to start again.  Its amazing that these city slicker producers thought that leaving the chickens for us was such a great thing to do just because we lived on a ranch.  We did enjoy the eggs for awhile though.  Especially the time that all of them were laying double yoke fresh eggs everyday.

                                      WE grew our own maize, corn etc. and dad had a grain mill which we made our own feed for the chickens, pigs and some for the cattle.  MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WERE REMINISCING THE OTHER DAY ABOUT THIS , HOW MUCH FUN THIS WASN'T (HARVESTING THE GRAIN AND PUTTING INTO THE GRAIN BIN AND GROUNDING THE GRAIN

                                       

                                      Mom raised chickens for eggs and eating.  The butchering days weren't fun either.  we would kill 25 to 50 on a Saturday and pluck and process.  I usually couldn't eat chicken a couple of weeks after that.

                                        Does anyone have a chicken and rice receipe? I have tried and tried to
                                        make it. I boil the chicken with salt, pepper, onions and celery then
                                        simmer. It is still lacking something, maybe my Grandmammas Touch.

                                          Also, put in some shredded cabbage in any meat and vegie soup.  My French Canadian grandma told us that it makes the difference and it really does.  I don't know what the combo of cabbage and celery in a soup does, but it really influences the broth and makes the flavor of broth soup.  When I've left it out because I didn't have any cabbage, the broth tasted like something was missing.  Of course, we use all of the other things youall have already mentioned.   I've never liked noodles in my soup, but I do like rice in it.  Jewish Pencillin isn't the noodles, its the warm chicken broth.  Also be sure to add some bay leaves and take them out before serving.  That's the secret in Jewish chicken noodle soup. All that the noodles do in any soup, Jewish or otherwise, is to stretch the soup--just like rice does.  That way, you will always have enough soup in case people drop by at the last minute--which happened a lot at our ranch.  We rarely knew when we started a meal how many people extra would be sitting down to eat it so I still have trouble making small, family-sized meals for just the three of us (one of our boys is still at home).

                                          I heard the onions and celery in with the chicken to boil. I didn't hear anyone say GARLIC and CARROTS( I toss in a whole sack of baby carrots). When done, take out the chick and use a potato masher to mash up the veggies then add the deboned chicken and rice. Simmer to supremacy. It'll never be Granny's on that wood stove with her garden veggies, but it'll do. Especially when little ones have a cold. We've all heard of "Jewish Penicillin" (noodle soup), well, I tell people that is my "Czech penicillin".

                                            Funny that you should say that.  My mom did the same thing with my dad's mom while she was alive.  Mom wanted to make my Grandma's fantastic vegetable beef soup.  Ohhh, it was good!  My mom makes good vegie beef soup, but not like Grandma's.  Mom stood over Grandma and took notes while she was making it--several times, she took her to the store to get the ingreds., etc. The same thing you did with your mom. It NEVER tasted like Grandma's no matter what Mom did.  To this day, it still frustrates Mom to talk about it.  The same thing with Grandma's delicious oatmeal raisin cookies.  I followed grandma's recipe that my mom wrote down for years, tried tweaking it one way or the other and they never came out the same.  Then I tried every oatmeal raisin cookie recipe that sounded like it should bake up right.  FINALLY, many years later and so many recipes behind me,  I found a recipe that was close and I tweaked it just enough and it tastes almost the same as Grandma's cookies. I called my mom even before the cookies cooled and told her that I got it finally, but the recipe is not the same as Grandma's. My mom had written down the recipe as my Grandma was making those cookies and it didn't work for anyone except Grandma.  Magic? I don't know, but I have one that is almost as good as Grandma's.  Maybe when I get some grandchildren, they will taste like Grandma's, huh?   The soup?  Well, we found that if we threw things in that Grandma did and made it with love, its good--especially after it sits in the refrigerator covered for a couple of days.  It isn't Grandma's, but we like it.  My mom is a great cook. She's from TX and is a Moravian.  Maybe you have to be French from Canada to make soup exactly like Grandma's.  haha

                                            I'm in the same boat - except I'm trying to duplicate my Mama's.  Ain't never gonna happen.  When she was alive, I actually took her to the store, let her pick the ingredients and then we went back to her house and I made it in her kitchen.  I used her pots and utensils and I'll be danged if it STILL didn't taste like hers!!!!! ARGHHHH!!! 

                                            So now I make it my way - it's not Mama's but it's still pretty good. Good luck!

                                              I'm with you there.  I used to have a cast iron stomach and digestive system.  I enjoyed hot and spicy foods.  Now it makes me kinda sick even thinking of trying to eat that kind of food.  Why is it that some people can eat whatever they want for their whole lives and others of us spend a ridiculous amount of time paying for what we do eat?  My very favorite food used to be good ol' Texas butter beans and ham hocks with warm, fresh-from the-oven buttermilk cornbread w/ lots of butter.  Now I just call that meal "a form of suicide".  I still mourn that meal after all of these years.  LOL!  I wouldn't DARE eat beans or pork now.

                                                I don't know if any of these are Czech ingredients, understand.   I believe that the Czechs are who took the spice and the flavor out of djuvec.

                                                Thank You Judy.  I thought poultry seasoning was just for dressing.  I will try that.  paulasmaggie

                                                That really is the secret to good chicken and rice!  A home grown, range free chicken!
                                                 
                                                But you can spice it up some with store bought chicken.  Add a touch of poultry seasoning, garlic, and salt free butter to give the broth a touch of richness.

                                                Although I don't consider it Czech, usually when I make a chicken and rice casserole, I use cream of celery and/or cream of mushroom soup. That could be your missing ingredient.

                                                  One of my favorite comfort meals was one my mom taught us.  Fresh, HOT mashed potatoes with chopped bacon and chopped green onions in it.  Put that in a bowl and poor cold, fresh buttermilk all over the potatoes--lots of buttermilk and eat.  My dad wasn't a fan, so we "girls" would eat it when he was working late.  Oh, my gosh that was good!  My mom can no longer eat potatoes of any kind (they give her migraines now), and none of us can eat pork bacon.  Besides the potatoes are one of those foods that can cause problems as most of us older adults know.  Sigh
                                                   
                                                  How about the rest of you--what are or were your favorite foods?

                                                  When I was little, my Mom fixed that meal for dinner and later on that evening my Dad would go in and put leftover cornbread in a glass and add buttermilk or milk to it and eat it with a spoon, like it was his special little treat.  He loved it!

                                                  I'm with you there.  I used to have a cast iron stomach and digestive system.  I enjoyed hot and spicy foods.  Now it makes me kinda sick even thinking of trying to eat that kind of food.  Why is it that some people can eat whatever they want for their whole lives and others of us spend a ridiculous amount of time paying for what we do eat?  My very favorite food used to be good ol' Texas butter beans and ham hocks with warm, fresh-from the-oven buttermilk cornbread w/ lots of butter.  Now I just call that meal "a form of suicide".  I still mourn that meal after all of these years.  LOL!  I wouldn't DARE eat beans or pork now.

                                                    I loved Sunday dinners when we were kids, mom always baked fresh bread,  with homemade butter, you can't get much more comfort then that., but I loved her chicken and dumplings, chicken noodle soup w/ homemade noodles, and the roast she would make with veggies and a rich tomato gravy to die for, but you can not forget her homemade cinnamon rolls, I have her recipe as close as you can get w/her not using one, these were tender, big and wonderful.  my mom was a awesome cook, she could bake anything, her home made biscuits were something else, I tried and tried to imitate and got real close, then gave up and use bisquik mix, but everything else I can do pretty good.  With 2 sisters, 4 brothers their spouses and kids, it is quite a house full now when I make mom's favorites.

                                                    One of my favorite comfort meals was one my mom taught us.  Fresh, HOT mashed potatoes with chopped bacon and chopped green onions in it.  Put that in a bowl and poor cold, fresh buttermilk all over the potatoes--lots of buttermilk and eat.  My dad wasn't a fan, so we "girls" would eat it when he was working late.  Oh, my gosh that was good!  My mom can no longer eat potatoes of any kind (they give her migraines now), and none of us can eat pork bacon.  Besides the potatoes are one of those foods that can cause problems as most of us older adults know.  Sigh
                                                     
                                                    How about the rest of you--what are or were your favorite foods?

                                                    When I was little, my Mom fixed that meal for dinner and later on that evening my Dad would go in and put leftover cornbread in a glass and add buttermilk or milk to it and eat it with a spoon, like it was his special little treat.  He loved it!

                                                      My dad loved cornbread and milk too.  but as far as comfort food go. I have a long list.

                                                       

                                                      I loved Sunday dinners when we were kids, mom always baked fresh bread,  with homemade butter, you can't get much more comfort then that., but I loved her chicken and dumplings, chicken noodle soup w/ homemade noodles, and the roast she would make with veggies and a rich tomato gravy to die for, but you can not forget her homemade cinnamon rolls, I have her recipe as close as you can get w/her not using one, these were tender, big and wonderful.  my mom was a awesome cook, she could bake anything, her home made biscuits were something else, I tried and tried to imitate and got real close, then gave up and use bisquik mix, but everything else I can do pretty good.  With 2 sisters, 4 brothers their spouses and kids, it is quite a house full now when I make mom's favorites.

                                                        I know how you felt.  When I was even too old to know better, I used to part my mom's hair just to make sure she didn't have tiny little telescoping, wide angle eyes in back of her head after all.  We all used to swear that our 10th grade typing teacher had eyes all over her head.  Used to freak all of us out how she knew we weren't typing our exercises, but had gone on to typing a note to someone.  Of course, NOW I know how she knew (diifferent rhythm), but it was freaky how she would quietly come up alongside a student who was off task and get them back on task really fast.  It was wierd and every 10 grader talked about it because most of us took typing in 10th grade--boys and girls. The strange thing about it was how we never figured it out and we were supposed to be intelligent kids.

                                                        My dad loved cornbread and milk too.  but as far as comfort food go. I have a long list.

                                                         

                                                        I loved Sunday dinners when we were kids, mom always baked fresh bread,  with homemade butter, you can't get much more comfort then that., but I loved her chicken and dumplings, chicken noodle soup w/ homemade noodles, and the roast she would make with veggies and a rich tomato gravy to die for, but you can not forget her homemade cinnamon rolls, I have her recipe as close as you can get w/her not using one, these were tender, big and wonderful.  my mom was a awesome cook, she could bake anything, her home made biscuits were something else, I tried and tried to imitate and got real close, then gave up and use bisquik mix, but everything else I can do pretty good.  With 2 sisters, 4 brothers their spouses and kids, it is quite a house full now when I make mom's favorites.

                                                        One of my favorite comfort meals was one my mom taught us.  Fresh, HOT mashed potatoes with chopped bacon and chopped green onions in it.  Put that in a bowl and poor cold, fresh buttermilk all over the potatoes--lots of buttermilk and eat.  My dad wasn't a fan, so we "girls" would eat it when he was working late.  Oh, my gosh that was good!  My mom can no longer eat potatoes of any kind (they give her migraines now), and none of us can eat pork bacon.  Besides the potatoes are one of those foods that can cause problems as most of us older adults know.  Sigh
                                                         
                                                        How about the rest of you--what are or were your favorite foods?

                                                        When I was little, my Mom fixed that meal for dinner and later on that evening my Dad would go in and put leftover cornbread in a glass and add buttermilk or milk to it and eat it with a spoon, like it was his special little treat.  He loved it!

                                                        I'm with you there.  I used to have a cast iron stomach and digestive system.  I enjoyed hot and spicy foods.  Now it makes me kinda sick even thinking of trying to eat that kind of food.  Why is it that some people can eat whatever they want for their whole lives and others of us spend a ridiculous amount of time paying for what we do eat?  My very favorite food used to be good ol' Texas butter beans and ham hocks with warm, fresh-from the-oven buttermilk cornbread w/ lots of butter.  Now I just call that meal "a form of suicide".  I still mourn that meal after all of these years.  LOL!  I wouldn't DARE eat beans or pork now.

                                                        Just before turning the heat off I dump in a couple of splashes of Louisiana Hot  Sauce.  Works for me.

                                                        Does anyone have a chicken and rice receipe? I have tried and tried to
                                                        make it. I boil the chicken with salt, pepper, onions and celery then
                                                        simmer. It is still lacking something, maybe my Grandmammas Touch.
