Recipe by Aunt Sukki
The ranch adds a lot of flavor that's missing from the traditional chicken & rice dish. I got this recipe from the back of a box.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 3⁄4 cup uncooked long grain rice or 3⁄4 cup white rice
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 (16 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons dijon-style mustard, prepared
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon dried ranch dip, seasoning mix or 1 tablespoon substitute 1 tablespoon dry onion soup mix
