This is a delicious casserole that's super easy to throw together in a pinch. The best part is that it uses most things you probably already have in the pantry.

This was very tasty. I like my chicken turned in the middle of baking because it looks so much more appealing. That was the only change I made to the recipe. Read More

This is probably just a personal preference but I didn't really care for this...I don't like to give bad reviews because everyone has different taste. I was afraid this might have a processed taste and it did. I'm not a food snob and I have nothing against using can cream of mushroom etc. soups. But it has been my experience that unless really diluted with other things it can give a processed food taste. But I was craving white rice and gravy and thought I'd give it a try. It wasn't at all horrible but it's not something I'd make again. However it gets 3 stars for being easy and convenient. I think substituting one of the cream soups most likely the celery and upping the broth (Cook the rice separate). Removing the chicken when done and thickening the gravy with a butter and flour roux would greatly help with the processed flavor. But to each his own. Read More

This was real easy but needs something eles to it and maybe only half the dried onion soup mix and that could even be mixed with the rest of the soup and broth. Didn't make a whole lot of sense on the bottom. I suggest that you just keep looking at other recipies before making this one. Read More

Family chefs: Solve the single person / childless couple size by DOUBLING this easy and fast to make dish!! Use NON-STICK COOKING SPRAY on that glass baking dish too; a light touch of it really helps out!! My family LOVED this dish...and I was getting creatively inspired!! I went full-throttle rouge my 2nd time making this: Made several large baked potatoes--and shredded them ( skin and all!! ) covering the baking dish covered with "savory herb and garlic" flavored soup mix. I hickory smoked the chicken and subbed Cream of Cheddar over cream of celery--and added green beans to the sauce mix!! 30 min. in the oven--I tore off the aluminum top and baked on for 15 more minutes!! As the dish cooled down I ground down some flavored croutons and lightly topped the thick sauce with it. Major hit with my family--and my toughest food critics!! TARAWVU you are indeed a genius--thank you for this great dinner dish!! Read More

This is my recipe and I just noticed that it's different than the one I submitted. It should be 1 & 3/4 cups of rice. If you only use 3/4 c. of rice it will turn out entirely too soupy and just gross. And if you don't like processed foods I suggest you find a different recipe. Yes it's processed but it's tasty and quick which is why I make it and published it. Read More

This was super easy and flavorful! Even my kids liked it. I cut my chicken into cubes before cooking it and it stayed very moist. I also mixed all the can soup broth soup mix and rice together then poured the mixture over the chicken and baked it a little over an hour. The only thing is it was a little too salty. I'm going to try low sodium chicken broth next time and maybe a low sodium cream of celery. I don't want to cut too much salt; I don't want it to loose flavor! Read More

I loved the taste and it was easy to put together....but cooked a full hour and the chicken was starting to get over done and the rice wasn't cooked all the way through. Well definitely try again but will make some modifications. Read More

OMG, this takes me back! Growing up in the 1960/1970's, this was my mother's favorite casserole recipe, and the first dinner recipe I learned by heart. These ingredients and measurements are spot on. To the reviewer who turned her nose up because it tasted "processed", yes my dear, you are indeed a food snob. Generations of Americans prior to yours grew up on these recipes which were straight out of Good Housekeeping magazine and on the sides of soup cans.....However, these days I make this casserole using 100% organic ingredients and it's tasty and terrific!!

I absolutely love this dish. I was in a pinch and didn’t have any rice so I substituted egg noodles. It was amazing!! Definitely will make again and again. Read More
