This is very easy to make, with ingredients that you might usually have on hand. It gets its flavor from dry soup mix. Try it with some fresh, steamed vegetables.

This was a hit with my family!! I substituted onion soup mix for the chicken soup mix and the flavor popped. Also used brown rice which took a little longer to cook but tasted so yummy! Simple and delicious! Read More

This recipie is easy to make on a busy day, plus my family thought it tasted great. A red bell pepper also works well in this dish, if someone doesn't like green peppers. Read More

Although I changed a few things this was a great base recipe. First I used olive oil to brown the chicken. I used the boneless thighs I had in the freezer which stayed nice and juicy. I used carrots and celery for the veggies and I might even use peas next time. Lastly I used onion soup mix as others had suggested. It turned out great and so amazingly easy to make. The only thing I might do different would be to use regular rice instead of instant. The rice was a little soggy for my taste. Thanks for this great recipe! Read More

I made mine with Onion Soup mix. Yummy. Easy. My rice came out a little bit greasy so I made another couple of servings on the stove and mixed it in. Just right now! Thanks for sharing. Read More

This recipe is a GREAT concept and a WONDERFUL guideline to follow. I hardly ever follow directions when making recipes and I really don't want to be one of those people who list what they did differently but I have got to commend you for this recipe! I used very health-friendly non-dairy ingredients even down to the packet of dry chicken soup and was VERY VERY pleased both times I have made this! Thank you for posting your idea! Read More

This was a very easy and delicious recipe. I do agree though that you only need one cup of water for the rice mix. After I put the chicken in the oven with the rice mix I turned the oven up to 375 degrees because it seemed to take longer to cook the chicken than the original recipe said. Otherwise everything was great:) Read More
