“This is my family's favorite one dish meal - mine too, since it is so easy to put together! I use skinless, boneless chicken breasts but mixed chicken pieces can be used, too. I also use the low fat, low sodium canned soups and the taste is still great!” - by Carol

"Whenever my family want something warm and comforting, I make this dish. I use chicken thighs, personal preference, I chop onions and garlic and fry those up then use the oil and drippings from the o..."

"I remember my mom making a very similar recipe when I was a kid, and it was one of my favorite dishes. I was finally able to find the recipe again here! I do increase the rice by about half a cup and ..." See moreadd about a cup of milk with everything else (so there are two cups of liquid). Since you usually use twice as much water as rice, I think the extra milk helps. Also, it is very important to cover this dish with foil while it cooks and to stir it about every 20-30 minutes or so. Stirring it will help the rice cook more evenly so you don't end up with crunchy rice, and I believe covering it helps keep the moisture in so that the liquid you want your rice to absorb doesn't end up as steam. If you follow those two rules, I think you'll have success with this recipe. It's a good no-fuss meal! Oh, and I also mix the onion soup in with the rice mixture - I think it would be too strong just sprinkled on top, but mixed in it gives a good flavor."
"This is an amazing recipe! I've made it at least 10 times in the past 6 months and I never tire of it. It's one of my husbands favorites! I've used all different types of meat (chicken drumsticks, ..." See morechicken breast, even pork chops!). I also add in some sort of frozen vegetable -- usually defrosted spinach or broccoli."
