I think this chicken and rice recipe is a favorite to my family because of the onion soup mix that is sprinkled on top. It gives the dinner a little 'zing'. Much different than the other chicken and rice dinners I've made. Even better because it's so simple to make.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can water
  • 1 cup of uncooked instant rice
  • 10 pieces chicken (or less)
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix soup, water add rice in a large baking pan.
  3. Arrange chicken over rice and soup mixture.
  4. Sprinkle with onion soup mix.
  5. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 2 hours.

My husband said that he "love love loved the rice!" And I'll have to admit, the rice was pretty good, although I thought it was a bit lacking in flavor... I will be making this again, since the husband loved it so, but I might experiment a bit in adding a touch more flavor... Thanks for the recipe!

Couldn't have been easier, I had all of the ingredients on hand. The chicken was so moist and tasted great. I doubled it and used 1 can of cream of chicken and 1 can of cream of mushroom because that's what I had. I also used chicken broth instead of water. I used chiken breasts and it cooked for about a hour and a 1/2. Thanks for a great recipe!

The rice was really great! I thin the chicken needed a bit more time I'd pan fry it w/some chicken seasoning before adding to casserole. We used 2 boneless skinless breasts cut into bite size pieces and cooked it for 45 minutes...turned out tender and juicy!
