“The okra plant was brought to America's South by Ethiopian slaves. These green pods can be prepared in a variety of ways and, when cooked, give off a thick substance that thickens any liquid in which they are cooked. That makes this chicken rice casserole A-OKRAY!”

I loved the flavors, but I made the mistake of making this in my slow cooker, and it turned to mush. I made this again, in the oven, and followed another reviewer's tips - added 1 can French onion soup, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup rice, 1 can water, added the chicken pieces on the top, and baked at 350 for an hour, uncovered. It was wonderful(!), but my chicken was a little overdone - I think 45 minutes would do it. The third time I made this, I reduced the baking time to 45 minutes, and the chicken was perfect...but the rice was crunchy. Aarrgh. Next time, I will bake the rice 15-20 minutes, THEN add the chicken, and cook it 45 minutes. This dish is way too easy for me to throw it out. Thanks for the recipe!

I increased the cook time to 52 minutes - the rice was fully cooked and had absorbed all of the moisture. This is an excellent low-fat meal that I will be sure to cook again.

As it is, I am not sure how this recipe cooks all the way through in the time allowed. I made chicken and rice my way (one can french onion soup, one can cream of mushroom soup, one can water and one cup rice) and added fresh okra to the mix. Then put the chicken pieces on top and bake UNCOVERED for 1 hour at 350 degrees or until chicken juices run clear. Like this, it was very good. The okra doesn't add a ton of flavor but it does add an extra helping of vegetables to an already good dish!
