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).

I threw this in the oven,left BF in charge and ran out for my nail appt. When I got back the house smelled so good I could hardly wait the last 15 mins. Wonderful easy dish. Made exactly as stated (with boneless,skinless breasts).Served with broccoli and rolls. Great quick meal !
