Cheesy Chicken & Rice Bake

August 7 at 1:38 pm 2 comments

The husband and I made this Campbell’s casserole the other night as a quick and easy dinner after work.  The prep time is almost nothing.  It does bake for 45 minutes, though, so be warned…

Although this wasn’t exactly bursting with flavor, it tasted good and makes a fantastic comfort food.  We only used half as much chicken and took the leftover rice and veggies for lunch the next day.  Yum!

I’m tempted to try this with brown rice, but don’t know whether that’ll affect the baking time.  Anyone??

1 can Campbell’s cream of chicken soup
1 1/3 c water
3/4 c uncooked long grain white rice
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 c frozen mixed vegetables
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 c shredded cheddar

Stir the soup, water, rice, onion powder, and vegetables in an 11 x 8-inch baking dish.  Top with the chicken. Season the chicken as desired. Cover and bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Top with cheese and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir rice before serving.

    I have my own recipe that is similar to this, but is mouthwatering. Beware though, there is nothing “light” about it, even if it only takes about 15 minutes prep and 25 minutes to bake.

    Crunchy Cheeseroni:
    2 C uncooked macaroni (I use rotelli)
    1 l.b. ground beef
    1 can cream of mushroom soup – add 1/2 can of water
    2 C shredded Colby Cheese (really the best and I have tried it with others)
    1 can (3oz) of French Fried Onions

    Cook macaroni and drain. During cooking, brown ground beef and drain grease. Add soup and cooked macaroni to beef. Place half of mixture in a 2 quart casserole. Sprinkle with half the cheese and onions. Top with remaining mixture and cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining onions and bake 5 minutes longer. Serves a generous 4 (or makes a wonderful lunch the next day).
