chicken no peek

i wanted to share one of my favorite chicken recipes with you. super easy, super tasty.
1 package dry onion soup mix
4-6 chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can broccoli cheddar soup
1 1/2 cups minute rice
1. in bowl, mix together rice and soups [mushroom & broccoli]
2. grease casserole or 13×9 dish
3. spread rice and soup mix in dish
4. sprinkle half of package of onion soup on top of mix
5. lay chicken breasts on rice
6. sprinkle remaining dry soup mix on top of chicken
7. bake @ 325 degrees for 2.5 hours, covered
(*original recipe was for chicken with bone-in, hence the really long bake time. with boneless chicken, you can try about 1 hour-1 hour 20 minutes!)
8. remove from oven and enjoy 🙂

start with the ingredients shown below:

mix your rice and 2 cans of soup in a bowl

so it looks like this [so appetizing, right?!]

spread it in your dish [again, appetizing.]

add the dry soup mix to the top so it looks like this:

throw them chickens on there

and add more dry soup mix

bake at 325 degrees for 2.5 hours

and it will look similar to this [the top isn’t burnt, it’s the onion soup mix that carmelized a little bit…yum. however, the edges are a little crisp. just watch it the last 30 minutes or so to make sure yours gets to be a color that you like]

serve it up and enjoy:

so, there you have it. lemme know if you guys try it out!

    Looks great! I make a chicken and rice casserole similar, but with regular long grain white rice, cream of chicken soup, and cream of mushroom, and the dry onion soup mix. You basically line the bottom with the rice then put the chicken, both soups and a can and a half of water..then I cook about 2 hours on 325. I'll have to try yours though! 🙂 Looks great!

    So, I am trying this recipe right now. I totally hacked it though…no rice or broccoli cheese soup, so I substituted broccoli au gratin rice-a-roni and 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. Wish me luck! 🙂

    Lauren – sounds delish!

    Kimberly – glad to hear it worked!

    Carolyn – yes, the original recipe (2.5 hour cook time) is meant for chicken with bone-in. for boneless chicken, cook time can be reduced to about 1 hr-1 hr 20 min!

    Jamie Lee – hope you guys enjoy it!

    It was fantastic. Kid approved, too. I would suggest (if you have a family of 5 and kids who are more likely to eat rice rather than chicken) to make twice the amount of rice/soup mix. Thanks for a great recipe! I will be sure to add this to my go-to list. Thanks!
