When I read this recipe, I thought what could be bad about all of these? I read several of the reviews, I needed a "bland-ish" dish for my husband this week to help calm some reflux issues - I thought this would work. I did 1/2 wine, 1/2 milk instead of 1-1/2 cans milk; I cooked covered 1 hour at 350, then uncovered for 1/2 hour. I stirred in some cheese, I used skinless boneless chicken instead. And, I only used 1 T the onion mix. I am well beyond a novice cook, but to make something quick, with what I had on hand, and minimal effort this evening, I gave this a shot. I mixed everything very well, even brought out a wisk. I used a Le Crueset buffet casserole dish instead of the 9x13, but surface area is about the same. Parts of the rice was gooey, part was dry, chicken was fine - my 3 year old LOVED it. Rice tasted like cream of mushroom soup with a touch of onion soup with a touch of wine. No subtle flavor, just convenience factor. It wasn't bad, but as others said, perhaps with cutting down the onion MORE than 1/2 packet (I used 1 T total), maybe adding different spices, it has potential for a "I don't know what else to make for dinner, but I've got all these ingredients"-dinner. My non-picky husband suggested I don't need to make this one again.
