"This is very easy to make, with ingredients that you might usually have on hand. It gets its flavor from dry soup mix. Try it with some fresh, steamed vegetables." — Karen

chicken rice soup mix
This was a hit with my family!! I substituted onion soup mix for the chicken soup mix and the flavor popped. Also, used brown rice which took a little longer to cook but tasted so yummy! Simple and delicious!
This recipie is easy to make on a busy day, plus my family thought it tasted great. A red bell pepper also works well in this dish, if someone doesn't like green peppers.
Although I changed a few things, this was a great base recipe. First, I used olive oil to brown the chicken. I used the boneless thighs I had in the freezer, which stayed nice and juicy. I used carrots and celery for the veggies and I might even use peas next time. Lastly, I used onion soup mix as others had suggested. It turned out great and so amazingly easy to make. The only thing I might do different would be to use regular rice instead of instant. The rice was a little soggy for my taste. Thanks for this great recipe!
This recipe is a GREAT concept and a WONDERFUL guideline to follow. I hardly ever follow directions when making recipes, and I really don't want to be one of those people who list what they did differently, but I have got to commend you for this recipe! I used very health-friendly, non-dairy ingredients, even down to the packet of dry chicken soup and was VERY VERY pleased both times I have made this! Thank you for posting your idea!
I made mine with Onion Soup mix. Yummy. Easy. My rice came out a little bit greasy, so I made another couple of servings on the stove and mixed it in. Just right now! Thanks for sharing.
It was great, made it with brown rice, super easy fast supper! Oh, and I used onion soup mix also.
