An easy casserole. If you like green bean casserole, you will like this dish. It is REAL easy and smells wonderful baking. Anybody can make this. I didn't even layer this; just plopped the chicken on top of the rice mixture and covered it with onion soup mix.

- Put a layer of soup mixture in a baking dish.
- Add the chicken.
- Add the rice mixture.
- Sprinkle the top with the Lipton onion soup mix.

Comfort food at its best!!! Like Annacia stated, not necessarily for a formal dinner, but oh so yummy!! I made this as written, except using two extremely large chicken breasts. This did cut down on the cooking time somewhat, but still cooked it for about 1 1/2 hours. I think next time I would mix the onion soup mix in with the rice and other soups, except for a little bit to season the chicken, as the onion pieces got very crispy when it was cooked uncovered. I made this for my lunch today, so after it was cooked, I took all the meat off the bones and diced it up and added it back in with the rice and froze many servings. Now I have many other great lunches to look forward to eating. Thanks for sharing a yummy comfort food recipe. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
While I wouldn't recommend this for your next black tie formal dinner party if you put this on the table and call the family be prepared to hear a lot of "mmmmmmmm's". This is delicious, no two ways about it. I couldn't see how a 9x9 pan was going to hold the rice mix and a whole chicken so I used s 4 1/2" deep x 10 1/2" long oval casserole dish and it was full to within a 1/2" from the top when the chicken was done. The chicken is very moist, tender and tasty. I was delayed getting back to the kitchen so I missed taking the lid of for the last baking time so of course it was white (hence no photo) but that didn't hurt it taste at all, The rice is also great, it's almost like risotto with the creaminess of the soups. All around, this recipe gets an A from me. It couldn't be easier and it's delicious. Gotta love that!
