  1. Place chicken in a large soup pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Stir in the salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning; boil for 1 hour, skimming fat from water occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Melt the butter over low heat in a large skillet. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 10 minutes. Transfer rice to a large roasting pan. Pour the broth from the chicken into the roasting pan; top with the chicken.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until rice is cooked, about 30 minutes.

This needed a decent amount of salt, not listed, to make it tasty. I ended up breaking the chicken up and baking it in the rice, to keep the chicken moist and the rice flavorful.

Tastes great with a bunch of added salt - very savory.
