RECIPE: Busy day chicken casserole

Posted by oilpainter (My Page) on

This is a recipe I developed for those busy days when you don't have time to fuss. It is pretty flexible and uses very few ingredients, is low in calories and tastes good.

BUSY DAY CHICKEN CASSEROLE

I cup rice
4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1-1/2 cup frozen peas
2 cups chicken broth
1 Package of onion soup mix.

Take a little of the powder from the onion soup mix and rub it on the chicken breast tops--just enough to color them. Put the rice in the bottom of the casserole dish. Sprinkle the peas over the rice and then sprinkle the rest of the onion soup mix over the peas. Pour the chicken broth over this and set the chicken breasts on top.
Bake @ 350 for 1 hour. 4 generous servings

Note--You can increase or decrease the size by putting in more or less of everything as long as you have a single layer of chicken.
No spices are required--there is enough salt in the broth and soup mix

Is the rice pre cooked?

RE: RECIPE: Busy day chicken casserole

No the rice is not precooked and I should have said long grain rice, not the instant kind. That is the reason for double the liquid(chicken broth) It is absorbed into the rice.

I remember my mother making this, but she used 1 can of cream of chicken & 1 can onion soup plus 2 cans of water.
She also used wild rice and that made it quite nice

I've made this also but it was called No Peak Chicken. Mine called for can soup also but I'll be trying it with the chicken stock for sure!

Well that just goes to prove that there are no new ideas only recycled ones. I thought this was my original recipe. I made it up one day when I didn't have time to fuss with dinner and it turned out good so I kept making it that way.

Thanks, oilpainter. I will give it a try the next time DD arrives with grandsons in tow. She needs more easy recipes for her family, and we can test it this way and get the recipe into her list of tried and true successes.
