Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk together the cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and milk; set aside.

  • Place the mushrooms and half of the dry onion soup mix into a 9x13 inch glass baking dish along with the cooked rice. Pour in half of the condensed soup mixture, and stir until thoroughly combined. Even out the mushrooms in the baking dish, then place the chicken breasts on top. Cover with the remaining condensed soup mixture, and sprinkle with the remaining dry onion soup mix.

  • Cover with aluminum foil, and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the foil, and continue baking 15 minutes longer before serving.

I make this recipe also and have for years but in order to make it lower calories I use brown rice and low fat soups and cut out the dry onion soup mix and it is still great and easy to make. Read More

I didn't really think this was anything special but it was nice and easy. I wasn't a big fan of the onion soup on top. That was the only really flavorful part of the dish but overpowering when you got a big bite of it. If I was to make this again I would probably just mix the onion soup in with everything else. My 2 year old liked it though and she's my toughest critic! Read More

It was easy but I was afraid it wouldn't have a lot of flavor so I made a few changes. I cooked the rice in chicken broth instead of water. I sauteed the mushrooms in olive oil with an onion and some garlic. I didn't have cream of mushroom but I had sour cream so I used that instead. I mixed the cream of chicken milk and sour cream. Then stirred the rice in then the mushroom mixture. I poured half in an oven dish layered the chicken then poured the rest on. Then topped with crushed ritz. Pretty good that way. My only big change would be to cut up the chicken and mix that in and just pour it all together. Read More

I give this 4 stars for the "Easy" part. I thought that it was just OK. I'm not a big fan of recipes with cream soups but when you're short on time and you have hungry mouths to feed on a work night, this fits the bill! I made this exactly as written EXCEPT, I mixed the remainder of the Onion Soup Mix with the canned soups and milk. If I was to make this again, I would definitely use "low sodium" canned soups and only half of the package of Onion Soup Mix as it is extremely salty. If you like salty foods, you will like this. My boys, 12 yrs & 7 yrs old thought it was pretty good. My husband ate it and thought it was "good", but they were not saying WOW! This is a good dish to prepare when you are short on time for YOUR family. I wouldn't make this for "SPECIAL" guests. I served fresh brussel sprouts on the side as my family loves them. This can be served with just about any fresh veggie, green beans, aspargus, brussel sprouts, or just a dinner salad. Thanks for the EASY recipe when you are short on time!!!! Read More
