Recipe by GypsyWinds
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Pre-heat oven to 350°.
  • Using a Non-Stick Spray of your choice, coat a 9x13 casserole dish (a LIGHT rub of vegetable oil will work just as well).
  • Place chicken breasts in dish, barely touching each other- Skin side UP.
  • Pour in 3/4 cup water, allowing it to go around each piece of chicken.
  • Open 2 packets of Lipton Onion Soup & Dip Mix, and sprinkle all over chicken, using the entire packages.
  • Cover & seal casserole COMPLETELY with aluminum foil.
  • Bake at 350° for 60 min or until chicken is tender and completely cooked, (180°when checked with thermometer){See Notes below}.
  • Uncle Bens Brown & Wild Rice Mushroom Directions:
  • Using Medium saucepan combine rice, contents of seasoning packet, 4 1/4 cups water and 2 tablespoons butter or margarine.
  • Stir well.
  • Bring contents to a boil, REDUCE HEAT (low to medium low) and simmer covered 25 minutes or until water is absorbed.
  • Place chicken on a bed of the Uncle Ben's rice, making sure to get plenty of the sauce that is around the chicken.
  • Sprinkle with fresh chopped Parsley.
  • Enjoy!
  • ***NOTE***.
  • This recipe was originally cooked in an electric skillet at 375° for 1 1/2 hours, with steam vent closed, and NO added water.
  • It always came out moist w/ a fine gravy/sauce. I lost my electric skillet in a house fire, being on SS I never have the $ to get another I liked, so I changed the recipe for the oven. The difference in heat source I guess makes the need for added moisture.
  • Adding the small amount of water makes a gravy/sauce that is super when served as suggested.
  • There are many choices of Uncle Ben's Rice Recipes, choose the one you prefer. I like to add extra mushrooms, or other special touches such as parsley, and sometimes I just use a standard rice pilaf, with tiny chips of veggies.
  • We never make any other side dishes, this is more than satisfying.
  • Do not fuss over finger licking as people continue to pick every bite off the bones.
