Crockpot French onion chicken & rice


French Onion Chicken & Rice:
One cup of Rice
One can of condensed French Onion soup
3/4 soup can full of water
Chicken pieces cut up, salt & peppered.

Cook on high for 8-9 hours in the crockpot.
You can also cook in the oven at 350 degrees, covered in foil for an hour – remove the foil and cook for 20-30 minutes longer to brown the chicken.

Update: Okay I made this and I have to say I was underwhelmed. It was bland. Absolutely no flavor. We added salt, seasoned pepper, etc. The rice was mushy and overcooked. The chicken would have been perfect if it’d had any flavor. One positive thing I can say is it was super easy.

If I make it again, I would definitely change things a little. Maybe cook the rice separately and then combine it with the cooked chicken and soup. Really regret doubling the recipe. 😕


Baked chicken and rice casserole


3 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
garlic, shallot, and onion, to taste
Knorr homestyle stock, 2 of the little cups
1 1/2 cup of rice (I used jasmine)
1 10 oz can of cream of mushroom
1 c water
garlic salt and pepper to taste

Warm some oil in a pan. Add garlic, shallots and onion. Season with garlic salt and pepper to taste. Brown but do not cook through. When brown, add the stock. Let stock melt, then add the soup. Slowly add the water to thin out soup a bit. I used a cup, but use your judgment and use less or more depending on your preference. Add uncooked rice and mix well.Bring to a light boil.  Put into a casserole dish, cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Check rice and liquid level. Add water if needed and continue cooking until rice is done. You could also mix in whatever vegetables you want, like peas, mushrooms, broccoli, etc. add them when you add the rice. You may need to increase the liquid, either water or broth.

Creamy Chicken, Mushroom & Rice Casserole


1 cup brown rice, already cooked according to note directions (or you can cook it at the same time, but it will take about 45 minutes).

3 large chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces.

2 portobella caps, chopped

1 can reduced sodium chicken broth

1 cup cream or milk (i used heavy cream, simply because i wanted to make sure it was used.  I don’t use a lot of it, and was afraid i would have to throw it out).

In a 2 qt casserole, put cooked brown rice on the bottom and season with salt, pepper, tarragon, parsley, garlic powder, and oregano (or whatever you want).

In a large pan, saute’ chicken in a bit of oil.  Deglaze pan with chicken broth, then remove chicken with a slotted spoon and put on top of the rice.  Reduce chicken broth by about 1/3 over high heat.  Pour into a bowl, set aside.  Add a bit of butter, brown mushrooms.  When brown, add 1 T butter and 1 T flour, stirring constantly for about 1 minute.  Add the rest of the chicken broth.  Allow to thicken about 2 minutes.  Remove pan from heat.  Slowly add cream or milk.  Pour into casserole and stir to coat chicken and rice.  Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Note: To cook rice, use 1 cup brown rice (I use mahatma) and 2 3/4 c water.  Bring water to a boil, add rice.  Cover and reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until all water is absorbed.

1 family size can chicken and rice soup

mushrooms, chopped and sauteed in butter.

breadcrumbs (about 1.5 cups) mixed with shredded mozzarella (about 1 cup)

Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl, mix the soups.  Add chicken meat.  Pour into a large casserole.  Top with breadcrumb and cheese mixture.  Bake  until heated through, about 20 minutes.  How do you use the rotisserie chickens?
