Forgotten Chicken

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

When I was 10 I asked my sitter for this recipe because her house smelled SO good while it was in the oven. I still make it for the same reason today. This is different from the other Forgotten Chicken recipes already submitted. I sometimes use boneless skinless chicken and I LOVE the 2 different cooking options!

Terrific! Next time I would spray the pan as quite a bit of rice stuck to the pan. Might also mix up the soup with a touch of milk just to make it creamier and more pourable (perhaps Cambell's is creamy enough since I use the cheap stuff).
