  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk together the cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and milk; set aside.
  3. Place the mushrooms and half of the dry onion soup mix into a 9x13 inch glass baking dish along with the cooked rice. Pour in half of the condensed soup mixture, and stir until thoroughly combined. Even out the mushrooms in the baking dish, then place the chicken breasts on top. Cover with the remaining condensed soup mixture, and sprinkle with the remaining dry onion soup mix.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the foil, and continue baking 15 minutes longer before serving.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

It was easy, but I was afraid it wouldn't have a lot of flavor, so I made a few changes. I cooked the rice in chicken broth instead of water. I sauteed the mushrooms in olive oil with an onion a...

Great classic chicken and rice meal. Thanks for sharing.

This was similar to an old recipie my mother used to make. I did add some sour cream and topped with paprika. Otherwise I followed as listed and it tasted great.

i love this recipe and use it often, i do not use milk as i find the cream soups enough dairy and i use a can of chicken broth instead of water. i also salt and tenderize the chicken because it ...

I give this 4 stars for the "Easy" part. I thought that it was just OK. I'm not a big fan of recipes with cream soups but when you're short on time and you have hungry mouths to feed on a work...
