This recipe is missing a few key ingredients...I have been making this recipe for years, and my mom before me and her mom before her. With these changes, you will have five star recipe. Along with the mushroom soup (I use Golden Mushroom), you also need 1 can of water and another can of some kind of cream soup (I use cream of celery). Mix the canned soups, water and rice together, pour into the bottom of a casserole dish, add chicken breasts on top (I use bone in breasts to keep them moist long enough for the rice to cook), sprinkle with the dry onion soup mix, cover and bake at 350 for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. The end result is a "fix it and forget it" meal that my whole family (along with two picky kids) really enjoys.
This is similar to the one I've made for years. I use 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1 can cream of chicken soup. Mix and spread on bottom of dish. sprinkle rice (1 cup or a bit more) on top. Add chicken pieces-one cut up chicken or your choice-top w/ 1 can french onion soup. Top w/ foil and bake 45 min. take off foil for last 15 min. Plenty of liquid to cook rice. Have not tried this one and am not criticizing it. Just see that lack of liquid could be an issue as others have mentioned.
My mom made this for over 40 years, it's one of my favorite dishes. I love the rice, so I double the ingredients for the rice. Use 2 cups white rice, 2 cans cream of mushroom soup, 2 cans French Onion soup. Place rice in dish prepared with spray, mix soup together in a bowl and mix into rice (this is what will cook the rice and prevent it from being dry)place chicken on top, season with salt, pepper, and paprika, cover, and bake at 350 degrees for 2 hours, uncovering the last half hour. Never fails.
DON'T DO IT!!! They left out key steps. I'm really upset nothing about adding additional water or anything to help cook the rice. I was hoping for an easy fix it and forget it but all I got was NOTHING for dinner and frustration. Thanks for nothing. I WILL NOT try this again.
I've made this dish for many years but with a few key differences. I use 1 can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup 1 can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom S..oup WITH garlic 2 packages (not boxes) of Lipton Onion Soup Mix and I replace the water with Chicken broth. I cook the rice as directed on the package but instead of water I use the chicken broth both soups and 1 package of the soup mix. Once the rice is close to complete I place it in a casserole dish or baking pan and arrange the chicken on top of it. I don't like crunchy rice so this works better for me. I add the rest of the ingredients over the chicken and let it cook until the chicken AND rice are fully cooked. When I reheat the leftovers I put a little butter in it and it's wonderful!!!
This recipe IS missing key ingredients -- some kind of liquid. The rice does not cook evenly and the soups on top are not mixed into a nice sauce. Like another reviewer it was inedible as written and now the family is hungry and frustrated. Follow the advice of some other reviewers and add liquid and mix it with both the soup mix and the can of soup. I don't know how much to liquid to add so check out some of the other reviewers who have been making this correctly for years and try it that way. DON'T try it as written.
The chicken was thawed and I had the other ingredients. It sounded like an easy meal and it was. It took over an hour in the oven and the rice was hard around the edges ov the chicken and the soup just sat on top and didn't melt around. There was something left out of this recipe and that was probably some kind of liquid. Had I added some broth it might have been OK but not great. This was more suited to a crock pot.
Well I gave the recipe a go and after the 15 minute uncovered period the rice was still hard and dry. I've added a cup of milk now and put it back in for another 15 minutes. We'll see if that helps any. So adding a cup of milk helped. I would suggest mixing the can of soup onion soup mix and two cups of milk together and then pour all of that over the chicken and rice.
So to be fair, I added 1 1/2 cans of water to this and cooked it an additional 15 minutes. However, some of the rice (more than just a little.... ) was still uncooked. I also added a layer of shredded cheese. The flavors were great, but the rice ruined it for us. I will try it again, but maybe use pre-cooked rice next time.
