I'm confused, I've been using the recipe from the Campbells website for years and I've never heard of cooking the chicken first in a skillet, the thing I loved about this recipe was that you can throw all the ingredients together in a few minutes and throw it in the oven. It makes a meal that goes a long way and every one seems to enjoy, the only changes I made was I added onion and garlic powder to the chicken, I've had rave reviews, Here's the original instructions off the Campbell's kitchen website. "Heat the oven to 375°F. Stir the soup, water, rice, onion powder, black pepper and vegetables in a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Top with the chicken. Season the chicken as desired. Cover the baking dish. Bake for 50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Top with the cheese. Let the casserole stand for 10 minutes. Stir the rice before serving."

This recipe was ok. I took the suggestions to add in a couple more things. However, following the recipe my rice was undercooked and brought the meal down a bit. Next time i will cook the rice and veggies separate and also skip the oil for the chicken.

This is a GREAT recipe. Very easy and tasty. I boiled the chicken in water and cooked the rice and veggie's seperate. Then when the rice was done i cut up the chicken in bite sized pices and added it to the rice. And melted cheese on top! I also mixed in garlic, onion, and paramasan cheese. GREAT RECIPE!!!!

I used the ingredients as listed here, but baked them, covered, in a casserole dish, as suggested on the Campbell's soup can. The rice and veggies were thick, creamy, and tasty, but the chicken was a bit dry. Next time I might try cubing the chicken and mixing into the casserole, rather than leaving them on top.

My mom taught me a recipe similar to this except she cooks the chicken and rice separately. Then adds the soup and broccoli to the rice. She then puts the rice mixture and chicken in a baking dish and tops it with cheddar cheese and then throws it in the oven. Very tasty!

This is an old standby - my mom used to make this but she always took a package of Lipton Onion Soup mix and sprinkled half in the rice and the other half on the chicken - that really perks up the recipe and adds tons of flavor. Frenchs onion mixed in the rice and top the chicken is another good addition.

It didn't have much taste, even after I added some extra seasonings. Too bland.

The ingredient list looked a little bland for my family, so I sprinkled the chicken breasts as they were browning with onion powder, garlic powder, seasoned salt and black pepper to taste. My family loved it.
