  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Stir the soup, water, rice, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, onion powder, black pepper, broccoli and carrots in an 11x8x2-inch baking dish.
  2. Place the chicken on the rice mixture. Season the chicken with additional black pepper and sprinkle with the paprika. Cover the baking dish.
  3. Bake for 50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Top with the cheese. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir the rice mixture before serving.


  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer--just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.
