One Dish Chicken and Rice Bake

This dish has been one of my MIL’s standard dinners for years and years. I used to make it a lot in the late 70s and 80s, too. Makes a great meal when served with a green veg.

It’s so easy to put together. Goes together in 5 minutes and bakes in 45. Best of all it is mixed and baked in the same casserole! One dish to wash is always a plus.

The recipe also works well with pork chops too (just brown them first).

This is a keeper and I’ll bet you will be making it again and again.

One Dish Chicken and Rice Bake

Serves 4


1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup water
3⁄4 cup uncooked long-grain rice (not quick cooking)
1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Mix soup, water, rice, and 1/4 tsp each of paprika and pepper in ungreased shallow 2-quart casserole.

Lay chicken on top and sprinkle with remaining paprika and pepper.

Cover and bake until bubbly and chicken shows no signs of pink in the center–about 45 minutes.
