French Onion Chicken and Rice

My mom made this recipe often when we were growing up and now I understand is delicious and easy on the working woman! It is as simple as putting all the ingredients in a baking dish and sticking it in the oven. I don't really have any good stories for this dish except that has a great flavor and pretty healthy. Give it a try soon!

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breast (can be frozen)
1 1/2 c rice
1 packet dry onion soup
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup (I use the 98% fat free)
1 can chicken broth
Salt and Pepper

1. Put rice into a large baking dish. Sprinkle the dry soup mix over the rice.
2. Mix in cream soup and chicken broth. Fill can of chicken broth with water and add as well. (You want to make sure you have at least a 2:1 water to rice ratio, but I usually add more too make sure it isn't too dry).
3. Place chicken breast in pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken.
4. Cover and bake at 375 for 50-60 min or until rice is done. I typically check it once or twice during baking and stir it around so that it is well mixed. This is also your chance to add more liquid if it is absorbed and rice isn't done yet.

  1. I'm going to make this! Harris Teeter has but 1 get 2 free packs of chicken so this would be perfect. And it doesn't seem too hard.
