    Danet Robaina's Note:

    Basically it's a Campbell's chicken and soup recipe that I had tweaked. I had 4 hungry friends over and no real food or money since where in college (this is a cheap dinner to make and easy to double good for big families). All I had on hand was chicken and rice and mushroom soup. Lucky I had a few spare items on hand. I didn't like the idea of chicken just sitting there in cream of mushroom soup for an hour in the oven with rice. So I tweaked it with white wine and made it on the stovetop we couldn't wait an hour. With the brown bits it made the greyish looking soup into a pretty golden color and the garlic woke everything up. The Uncle Ben flavor rices are awesome--when you're in a pinch I totally recommend them. You can also use egg noodles--it makes it a bit more richer. Ever since then, I get this request about twice a week and people still don't believe its cream of mushroom soup--who knew !

    1. 1
      In a saucepan, add oil and 2 tablespoons of butter; let melt and then add chicken breasts. Cook until golden brown and juices run clear.
    2. 2
      While chicken is cooking, follow package directions for rice (it takes about 10 to 15 minutes I've found).
    3. 3
      In saucepan deglaze pan with wine.
    4. 4
      Don't get rid of those yummy brown bits--it gives this sauce flavor.
    5. 5
      Add garlic, cream of mushroom soup and milk; stir until creamy.
    6. 6
      Add cheese.
    7. 7

    8. 8
      Let cook for another 5 minutes.
    9. 9
      Serve with salad and garlic bread. Serves 4.
    10. 10
      You can also leave the rice separate and just put the chicken in the sauce--either way, it's your choice.

      Very, very good! I tried it with Long grain and wild rice pilaf by uncle bens, and then with fetuccini the next day. I used fat free soup, and only used a bit of fresh grated parmesean, but it was the good stuff (I treat it like gold!). YUM! I'll make this again. Thanks for a great recipe!
