  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk together the cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and milk; set aside.
  3. Place the mushrooms and half of the dry onion soup mix into a 9x13 inch glass baking dish along with the cooked rice. Pour in half of the condensed soup mixture, and stir until thoroughly combined. Even out the mushrooms in the baking dish, then place the chicken breasts on top. Cover with the remaining condensed soup mixture, and sprinkle with the remaining dry onion soup mix.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the foil, and continue baking 15 minutes longer before serving.

I make this recipe also and have for years but in order to make it lower calories I use brown rice and low fat soups and cut out the dry onion soup mix and it is still great and easy to make.

I didn't really think this was anything special, but it was nice and easy. I wasn't a big fan of the onion soup on top. That was the only really flavorful part of the dish, but overpowering when you got a big bite of it. If I was to make this again, I would probably just mix the onion soup in with everything else. My 2 year old liked it though and she's my toughest critic!

Tastes much better then it looks

It was easy, but I was afraid it wouldn't have a lot of flavor, so I made a few changes. I cooked the rice in chicken broth instead of water. I sauteed the mushrooms in olive oil with an onion and some garlic. I didn't have cream of mushroom, but I had sour cream, so I used that instead. I mixed the cream of chicken, milk, and sour cream. Then stirred the rice in, then the mushroom mixture. I poured half in an oven dish, layered the chicken, then poured the rest on. Then topped with crushed ritz. Pretty good that way. My only big change would be to cut up the chicken and mix that in and just pour it all together.

This was similar to an old recipie my mother used to make. I did add some sour cream and topped with paprika. Otherwise I followed as listed and it tasted great.

Really Great Hearty recipe. If you are looking for something fancy, this is not it. If you are looking for a great homemade meal for the whole family, this is great! Exactly what I needed. Husband loved it! I suggest serving with colors because as pictured, its not very colorful. :)

i love this recipe and use it often, i do not use milk as i find the cream soups enough dairy and i use a can of chicken broth instead of water. i also salt and tenderize the chicken because it was a bit blan but the rice is amazing.
