I am trying to use most of the ingredients in my cupboards and freezer before we leave on our holiday. I have some Campbell’s Soups and I have forgotten when I bought them, No they haven't been in there for a decade but long enough for me to get the old recipe file out to see what soup recipes I can find. I came up with this one and it is pretty simple and quite tasty. Hubs gave it the thumbs up and I was happy he enjoyed it. I did too. On top of that he has discovered after all these years that he enjoys Brussels Sprouts. I always have but whenever I have tried them on hubs he has been less than enthusiastic. I think the fact that I added a little butter was a big plus. I bought fresh sprouts on my last grocery run and served them tonight as the side dish, with a dab of butter of course.
One Dish Chicken and Rice Bake
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup water
3/4 cup uncooked regular long-grain rice
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
In a 2-quart shallow baking dish mix soup, water, rice, paprika and pepper. Place chicken on rice mixture. Sprinkle with additional paprika and pepper. Cover. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 45 minutes or until done.
Opinion with added notes: We both enjoyed dinner tonight and we have left-over’s for another meal to eat during the weekend. I had a much larger casserole dish than suggested in the recipe and as I didn’t want it all to dry out during cooking, I doubled up on everything except the chicken breasts. I used the one can of Cream of Mushroom called for and added one can of Cream of Celery. To the rice mixture I also added dehydrated chopped onions thanks to Celia who added them to her Fried Cornbread a little while ago, garlic powder and to finish off before putting it in the oven I sprinkled the chicken with Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and Pepper, along with the Paprika, and also a little more garlic powder. One of those meals that most of us have come across before, and a definite keeper for a fast, no fuss dinner.
