Easy Chicken and Rice

This is one of my mothers recipes that I have been making for years and years. I have never shared it with you and I thought tonight I would take a few pictures and share with you a family favorite since I was a child. 

There are only a few ingredients and with some good seasoning, some salad with ranch dressing and a vegetable it is a delicious meal. 

Ingredients

Boneless Chicken Thighs or Drumsticks
1 Can of Cream of Chicken
1 Can of Cream of Celery
1 Can of Cream of Mushroom
\1 Cup of Rice 
1 Can full of milk
Seasoning of Choice (I used Lawry's, Garlic Salt, Salt and Pepper and dried Parsley Flakes)

Directions

Mix all ingredients together except chicken
Pour into 9 X 13 pan
Grease pan
Lay chicken on top and season generously
Cook at 325 degrees for an hour and a half

  3. Thanks Trixie. Been in my family for year and it is so easy! Cathy, you don't have to cook the rice first. That is the beauty of how easy it is.

  4. This looks delicious! Just curious what you mean by a can of milk? One of the soup cans? Or is it supposed to be a cup? Wanted to make sure I measure correctly!

  9. We love this recipe too! Instead of the cream of chicken soup, we use a can of French Onion soup :) It's a family favorite (for years and years)

  14. Trying again tonight with different soups: cream of mushroom, cream of onion, and cheddar cheese soup. Can't wait to eat it :)

  15. I made this last night and I used uncooked brown rice which usually takes 40 minutes to cook. Since I was afraid the rice might not completely cook, I baked it for almost two hours at 325. However, the rice was still not done. We ate it but the rice was still very firm and gummy, not very good. So I recommend if you are using rice that takes a long time to cook you should cook it first!

  16. I use Uncle Bens. I have had the best results with it.

  17. since only using one cup of rice is it enough for family of 5?

  18. I use boneless/skinless chicken breast and a can of cream of celery soup, can of cream of chicken soup and 1 cup of rice and 2 cans of water. cover with foil, cook at 350 for an hour and 15 mins. and we call it "No Peek Chicken" because we don't lift the foil till it's done!

  19. Question- Use regular rice or minute rice?

  20. Learned to make this thirty years ago! How fun to find it on the internet via Pinterest! :-) I always used bone-in pieces, a can of water instead of milk, and the larger sized package of Vigo's Yellow Rice. It needed no additional seasoning and was usually done in an hour or so... baked uncovered...ready when the rice was soft. So easy and good!

  21. I am wondering if you can add cheese to this somewhere. Fixing chicken and rice from a request for Christmas eve and I think he wanted cheese too, but this one looks so good! thanks for all the clarification of details.

  22. I used to make this back in the 1960's, and it's still delish. However, I don't understand why there's no print tab or the availability to copy and paste to my recipe index.

  23. I have made this before using porkchops, so thought I'd give the chicken a try. I used chicken broth instead of milk and didn't have any celery soup, so just used chicken and mushroom. Still as yummy as ever! Thanks!

  24. I've made this for years. I use any cream soup, mix with milk and add rice. Put in 9x13, and chicken. Then I sprinkle an envelope of dry lipton onion soup. Sometimes I put some of the envelope in with soup mixture. Delicious. I'm making it today with skinless thighs and using coconut almond milk because I don't drink milk anymore.

  25. I used 1 cup Vigo yellow rice and added 1/2 of a large sweet white onion and 1/2 a bag of frozen peas. 1 hour 15 minutes covered with aluminum foil(from the No Peek recipe version). Turned out great. Glad I found your recipe. Thanks.
