1. Prepare rice mix according to package directions. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large frying pan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add onions and cook 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, 3 minutes. Add cooked rice and chestnuts to pan and stir to mix.

Reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue to roast until an instant-reading thermometer inserted into thigh registers 180°, about 2 hours longer.
