How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 375°F. Stir the soup, water, rice, onion powder, black pepper and vegetables in an 11 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish.

Step 2

Top the rice mixture with the chicken. Cover the baking dish.

Step 3

Bake for 50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Top with the cheese. Let the casserole stand for 10 minutes. Stir the rice before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Serving Suggestion: Serve with a Caesar salad. For dessert serve frozen Italian-style water ice or gelati.
  • Alfredo: Substitute broccoli florets for the vegetables and substitute 1/4 cup grated Parmesan for the Cheddar cheese. Add 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese with the soup. Sprinkle the chicken with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  • Lower Fat: Use Campbell's® 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup instead of regular soup and use low fat cheese instead of regular cheese.
  • Mexican: In place of the onion powder and black pepper use 1 teaspoon chili powder. Substitute Mexican cheese blend for the Cheddar.
  • Italian: In place of the onion powder and black pepper use 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed. Substitute 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan for the Cheddar.
  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

    Save cook time

    Do yourself a favor and use instant rice...it will cook much faster! Also I agree with others using additional seasoning...I like Mccormick rotisserie chicken or they have another chicken seasoning. I still use the onion powder and black pepper. I season the chicken before mixing it in then sprinkle addtional seasoning on top of the mixture.

    With a few tweaks, this rocks

    I like to add chicken Bouillon cube to the water, or use chicken broth in place of the water. I also cut the chicken it's small chunks, and season with Cajun Seasoning for an extra kick! This recipe definitely rocks. Extra Cheese, please ;-)

    Less Rice & More Cheese

    My family liked the recipe but I wish I had read the reviews about the chicken stock. It would have made it more flavorful. I would reduce the rice and increase the cheese. I used frozen organic broccoli and it was great in the dish.

    I make this for me and my husband using only two large chicken breasts since we are "Empty Nesters". I also use my own chicken stock instead of water. SO many variations and they are ALL delicious!!!

    Where is the Broccoli?

    So this recipe turned out quite well. It tasted pretty good and worked out despite that I used brown rice. My only complaint is that the broccoli dissolved into the sauce. I used frozen veg but they still cooked much faster than the rest of the dish.
