This recipe is missing a few key ingredients...I have been making this recipe for years, and my mom before me and her mom before her. With these changes, you will have five star recipe. Along with the mushroom soup (I use Golden Mushroom), you also need 1 can of water and another can of some kind of cream soup (I use cream of celery). Mix the canned soups, water and rice together, pour into the bottom of a casserole dish, add chicken breasts on top (I use bone in breasts to keep them moist long enough for the rice to cook), sprinkle with the dry onion soup mix, cover and bake at 350 for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. The end result is a "fix it and forget it" meal that my whole family (along with two picky kids) really enjoys.


This is similar to the one I've made for years. I use 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can cream of chicken soup. Mix and spread on bottom of dish. sprinkle rice (1 cup or a bit more) on top. Add chicken pieces-one cut up chicken or your choice-top w/ 1 can french onion soup. Top w/ foil and bake 45 min. take off foil for last 15 min. Plenty of liquid to cook rice. Have not tried this one and am not criticizing it. Just see that lack of liquid could be an issue as others have mentioned.


DON'T DO IT!!! They left out key steps. I'm really upset, nothing about adding additional water or anything to help cook the rice. I was hoping for an easy fix it and forget it, but all I got was NOTHING for dinner and frustration. Thanks for nothing. I WILL NOT try this again.
