"This is a delicious casserole that's super easy to throw together in a pinch. The best part is that it uses most things you probably already have in the pantry." — TARAWVU

1 (1 ounce) package
dry onion soup mix
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (14.5 ounce) can
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of celery soup
This is probably just a personal preference but I didn't really care for this...I don't like to give bad reviews because everyone has different taste. I was afraid this might have a processed taste and it did. I'm not a food snob and I have nothing against using can cream of mushroom, etc. soups. But it has been my experience that unless really diluted with other things it can give a processed food taste. But I was craving white rice and gravy and thought I'd give it a try. It wasn't at all horrible but it's not something I'd make again. However, it gets 3 stars for being easy and convenient. I think substituting one of the cream soups most likely the celery and upping the broth (Cook the rice separate). Removing the chicken when done and thickening the gravy with a butter and flour roux would greatly help with the processed flavor . But to each his own.
This was real easy but needs something eles to it and maybe only half the dried onion soup mix and that could even be mixed with the rest of the soup and broth. Didn't make a whole lot of sense on the bottom. I suggest that you just keep looking at other recipies before making this one.
This was very tasty. I like my chicken turned in the middle of baking because it looks so much more appealing. That was the only change I made to the recipe.
Family chefs: Solve the single person / childless couple size by DOUBLING this easy and fast to make dish!! Use NON-STICK COOKING SPRAY on that glass baking dish, too; a light touch of it really helps out!! My family LOVED this dish...and I was getting creatively inspired!! I went full-throttle rouge my 2nd time making this: Made several large baked potatoes--and shredded them ( skin and all!! ), covering the baking dish covered with "savory herb and garlic" flavored soup mix. I hickory smoked the chicken and subbed Cream of Cheddar over cream of celery--and added green beans to the sauce mix!! 30 min. in the oven--I tore off the aluminum top and baked on for 15 more minutes!! As the dish cooled down, I ground down some flavored croutons and lightly topped the thick sauce with it. Major hit with my family--and my toughest food critics!! TARAWVU, you are indeed a genius--thank you for this great dinner dish!!
I loved the taste and it was easy to put together....but cooked a full hour and the chicken was starting to get over done and the rice wasn't cooked all the way through. Well definitely try again but will make some modifications.
