I grew up eating this a lot but done just a tad different. My mom would cook a whole chicken and then once cooled pick it off the bone. She would then mix everything together and pour into a casserole dish then bake it until the rice was done. The chicken was never dried out and it was one of our favorite meals. Now that I'm married and I cook it, I throw my chicken in a crock pot to cook then prepare my rice on the stove. Shred my chicken and add everything else to it. Pop it in the oven to just heat it all the way through. Very quick and you don't have to worry about making sure the rice has enough liquid or not.
This was very easy and quick to put together. My 11 year old did most of it by herself. I didn't have onion soup mix so had to use a different seasoning but it turned out delicious. The only thing I will change next time is to reduce the cooking time to 45 minutes covered instead of an hour. The chicken was a little dry. I also lifted my chicken when I uncovered it like another reviewer suggested so it would brown better on top. Overall a great family friendly recipe :)
This is a great quick weeknight meal to throw together. I used fresh mushrooms as I don't care for canned but that was the only change. While serving we all had to add some fresh ground pepper to the dish to just take it up a bit in flavor. Overall though the chicken baked perfectly and the rice was nicely done. I did pull the chicken up a bit the last 15 minutes of baking to give it some color but that is no biggie when serving a family. Thanks for sharing. Made and tagged during Potluck Tag.
We enjoyed this for the flavor and it's very simple to make. The only thing I didn't care for was that the chicken was colorless white for being covered with the sauce while uncooked. I would make this again but I'd brown the chicken on one side first and reduce the cooking time by maybe 15 mins. Really excellent taste, the ingredients work very well together and I think that the whole family will enjoy it.
This was easy to make. I followed the recipe as written and we enjoyed this. We did think it needed some pepper but other then that it was good.
This was yummy, easy and quick to put together. Thanks, Teresa! Made for 123 tag.
This was very good! The chicken was super moist and just fall off the fork yummy! I used cream of celery soup (and picked out the canned mushrooms for mushroom hating DH) and a French onion soup mix. I did find the rice a little soggy, but I do prefer very firm rice. I'd make this again, just minus the mushroom juice.
