photo by abloom69
- Ready In:
- 2hrs 10mins
- Preheat oven to 325F.
- Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Sprinkle rice over bottom of dish, spreading evenly.
- Pour soups and milk into a saucepan, and heat over medium heat until heated through (do not boil), stirring occasionally.
- Pour soup mixture over rice, and stir until rice is completely coated.
- Lay pieces of chicken over rice, skin sides up.
- Sprinkle dry soup mix over chicken pieces, cover tightly with aluminum foil, and bake for 2 hours and 15 minutes, or until juices run clear from chicken when pierced with a fork.
I, too, have made this for years. The only difference is that I use a can of Campbell's onion soup instead of the dry soup mixes and do not include the 1/2 cup of milk. Just mix all three soups together and pour over the rice. It turns out great every time. Be sure not to salt anything. Easy and tasty!
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I work as a professional stagehand for my local union (IATSE Local 26, West Michigan Stagehands), which takes me all over the state and lets me meet all sorts of interesting people. My primary training is in lighting and wardrobe, and I can be found backstage at everything from rock concerts to opera/ballet/symphony/Broadway tour performances to hockey games to corporate meetings and Presidential appearances. In June of 2005, my Local elected me to serve as a delegate to our International convention in mid-July, which was held in Honolulu. In November of 2008, I was elected to my third three-year term as Recording Secretary of my union local. Currently, I am the news poster for www.megatechnews, a computer tech site affiliated with several other tech sites. My biggest passion is union activism. The more I get involved, the more I want to be involved. I also read like a fiend and enjoy "discovering" local or regional bands at local clubs. Recently, I started making jewelry again after a more than ten-year hiatus. It started as a project for Christmas presents, but doing it reminded me how much I enjoy it, so I may be resurrecting my business soon. I never duplicate a piece, because the entire point is that I do custom work, and will take orders to suit. The pieces I have done are in a photo album on Facebook located here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=21364&id=1373365950&l=5be410742d
