Recipe by Chipfo
My mother used to make this as I grew up. It is really good so don't knock it till you try it. It is really easy to throw together and tastes great, I know it goes against most types of cooking, but I grew up on it and I still eat it to this day. I will serve this to guests any day. For this I use only Cambells soup and Liptons onion soup mix, I do not use the store brands, it does make a difference.
- 4 chicken thighs (or pieces of choice, remember it has to fit in a 9x9 pan)
- 10 3⁄4 ounces cream of mushroom soup
- 1 1⁄3 cups milk (or 1 soup can full)
- 1 1⁄3 cups instant rice (or 1 soup can full)
- 1 (1 ounce) package onion soup mix
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Lightly grease a 9 x 9 baking pan.
- In a bowl, lightly mix the mushroom soup, milk and rice, don't try and get it smooth, leave lumps of soup in the mixture.
- Pour into baking pan.
- Sprinkle the onion soup mix over top and use a spoon to swirl into mixture, do not mix well.
- I like to season the top only of the chicken, the skin, the part that will be sticking up out of the soup mixture, I just lightly sprinkle seasoned salt.
- Place chicken into pan with soup mixture, skin side up.
- This will bake for about 1 hour, cover for the first 40 minutes, remove cover and bake an additional 20 minutes.
- This recipe can easily be doubled for a whole cut up chicken and a 9 x 13 inch pan.
- This is also very good with thick cut pork chops, also good with a can of mixed vegatables, drained and stirred in with the soup and rice mixture, you can also line the bottom of the pan with thin sliced potatoes.
- I like the recipe as-is, I suggest trying as-is first before experimenting, but, if I am using small thighs, I will sometimes place a couple of 4 inch pieces of smoked sausage in with it, YUM!
