Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole

I think this one came from the first cookbook my mom ever bought me, I've made it ever since I was about ten years old. Easy, cheap, and good tasting. You can substitute onion soup for the celery soup, and use onion salt instead of soup mix if you want and it'll taste just fine (discovered that when I was out of them).

  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of celery soup

This was pretty good. I added some chicken broth while it was cooking because the rice was very dry and the chicken still needed to cook more. i will probably be making again. thanks for posting

Ok it was a good idea but I used can of cream chicken also and a little more milk also I baked it for 3 hrs because the rice was hard so I added 1/4c more milk.After all my pain and suffering it was plain nest time im going to season the chicken more.
