Chicken & Rice Casserole

My dearest friend, K-bear, we heard your plea and found a recipe idea for your dinner. Here is a cost-effective, easy to make, and crazy delicious chicken and rice casserole that you'll love! All you do is chop, put in a pan, and bake. So simple, so good, and super cheap.

Here's the recipe:

1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1 1/2 C water
3/4 C uncooked rice
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 C chopped celery
1 C chopped broccoli
1/4 C chopped onion
3 chopped garlic cloves
1 lbs chicken cut into chunks

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the chicken into bit size chunks and season it with the salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Cut the broccoli into small florets

Slice the celery

Chop the onion and

In a large casserole dish mix together the water and soup until well blended. Then add the remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 50-60min or until the rice is tender. It's crucial you cover with the aluminum foil because that it what cooks the rice and holds the heat inside the dish. Don't put this in the oven without it or your dish won't turn out.

This is a quick solution to any dinner party. Even though it is simple it is quite delicious and there are lots of variations you can add. For example you can add bell pepper or mixed veggies. When it is done you can even try topping it with cheese. The possibilities and endless, but either way this dish is guaranteed to please! Enjoy!

Biscuits or rolls would be the best! The dish already has vegetables, protein, and rice so it's really filling:-)

HEY! Thanks so much. It went well. I made two pans and an hour worked just about right. I added rosemary potatoe bread. Everyone said it smelled great. I could not smell it. Dang. You guys are great. Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the recipe. This is what we had for dinner last night and let's just say that there were not any leftovers to salvage! It smelled great cooking and tasted even better. This is a dish that I like to make, but this version was quote, "the best chicken and rice I've ever had. Yours is good and all, but this was amazing." (per Zach) Thank you thank you! Loving this blog!
