Forgotten Chicken

I personally, love one dish meals. Anytime I can make a¬†recipe that is both a main course and side dish, it is a winner in my book. A few weeks ago, as I was scrolling through Pinterest, I saw this recipe. All the reviews were great, the recipe was simple to make, and I knew I just had to try it. Since I didn’t have some of the ingredients on hand, I changed it up a bit so I didn’t have to go to the store that day. The end result was amazing and my family devoured it quite quickly! My hubby took the leftovers to work the next day for lunch, so it must have been a winner huh?? This is one of those meals that is perfect at the end of a long day, perfect after church, or to make for a friend/family member!

You may be wondering why it is called Forgotten Chicken. Well, that is because, if you forget it is in the oven, chances are, it is still good. You can throw this together, put it in the oven, and walk away for a while. Now, of course, don’t go walking away for wayyyyyy long periods, but this is quite the easy dish, and I would even call it fool proof!

Enjoy!!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups Minute rice (I used brown rice)
  • 1 can cream of¬†mushroom soup
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can of water (use one of the soup cans)
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 envelope Lipton onion soup mix

 

Directions:

  1. Using the 1 tbsp. butter, butter a 9 x 13 baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, 1 can of water, and Minute rice.
  3. Pour mixture into buttered pan.
  4. Place chicken breasts on top of mixture.
  5. Sprinkle Lipton onion soup evenly on top of chicken breasts.
  6. Cover pan with foil and place in a preheated oven, 350.
  7. Cook for about 1- 1 1/2 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  8. Enjoy!!

I make this but wrap the chicken with a strip of bacon and then pour everything on top! My family loves it!

If not using minute rice, I prefer to use real rice, could I cook normal white rice ahead of time and use that instead? And how much would increase the liquids and/or soups if I wanted to add fresh raw broccoli in with the rice so it wouldn’t be dry? Thanks!

If using regular rice, I’d suggest adding a can of milk or another can of water. My granny’s recipe called for 2 cans of milk with regular rice, with all other ingredients remaining the same…

Was the brown rice a minute rice or just regular rice?

Sounds really good. Except for the onion soup. Any suggestions on a substitute for that part? I am gonna try his dish this weekend. Thank you for sharing.

Sounds delish and the best kind of meal, one pan and no fuss! My daughter doesn’t like onions. Any suggestions to replace the onion soup?

Quick tip…my mom has made this all my life but she lines the bottom of the pan with bacon and covers the entire casserole pan (boy to and too) with aluminum foil to make the bacon more crisp). You’ll never make it without the bacon again once you try it!

Oops! My comment about the bacon above should have read to cover with foil the “bottom” not the “boy”! Grrrr…auto correct! Lol!

Dont want to sound silly but, do you cook the minute rice first then mix it all?

I make a similar recipe and use regular rice, no pre-cooking required. Just make sure you have enough liquid to cook your rice.

Okay I make basically the same recipe with one chopped onion and about 2 T of garlic….I use the ground garlic in a jar. Also I put about 1/2 C frozen peas on top around the chicken breasts. Amazing good!

I’ve made this for years, using long grain white rice or basmati rice. Have never precooked the rice, but bake about three hours @ 250, tightly covered with foil. We call it “No-Peek Chicken”. Delicious!

I am not a rice fan. If I don’t add rice do I still put water in and if so how much.
