Cooking Time1 hr 30 min
- 2 cups instant rice, white or brown
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 can cream of celery soup
- 2 cups water
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 package onion soup mix
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish.
In a medium bowl, mix the rice with both cans of soup and the water. Spoon into the bottom of the casserole dish and lay the chicken breasts on top in a single layer. Sprinkle the dry soup mix on top and cover dish with foil. Set the casserole on a rimmed baking pan if the dish is very full and seems like it might bubble up over the sides.
Bake for 90 minutes; remove the foil and check to see that the chicken is cooked through. If the chicken breasts are large, it may require a few more minutes, uncovered.
