I had some boneless, skinless chicken breasts already cooked and wanted to come up with a recipe to use with them and to use some other things I already had on hand. I adapted it loosely from another recipe I had found online and it turned out great. My family and I really enjoyed it, and it's one I will definetly be making again. * You could substitute turkey for the chicken or diced onion for the french fried onions, and add any other veggies you would like.

  • 1 dash of tony chachere's creole seasoning
  • 1 dash italian seasoning
  • 1 dash garlic powder
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon butter (to keep the rice from sticking to itself)

  1. Cook and season chicken breasts if not already cooked, then dice up into small chunks, put in bowl and set aside.
  2. Boil the rice in the bag according to the box directions, drain, and cut open bag then pour into a greased baking dish with a tsp butter on top and stir to distribute the butter so as to keep the rice from sticking.
  3. In a sauce pan, heat up the cream of chicken soup and cream cheese, adding the can and 1/2 water roughly, to get the consistency desired so as not to be too thick or too thin.
  4. Stir till warm and cream cheese is melted and creamy.
  5. Add some of the french fried onions and the diced chicken to the soup stirring well to mix.
  6. Pour soup mixture over rice in baking dish and stir to have the soup coat the rice as well.
