Ingredients

cost per recipe: $7.47

  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast (4 small or 2 large cut in half crosswise)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cups uncooked instant white rice
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Recipe Note: For a creamier dish, decrease the rice to 1 1/2 cups.
    • Easy Substitution: This recipe is also delicious using Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup instead of the Cream of Chicken.
    • Ingredient Note: If you like, use instant brown rice and reduce the amount to 1 1/2 cups.
  • Step 1

    Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes or until browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup, water and paprika in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Stir in the rice and broccoli.  Reduce the heat to low.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Sprinkle the chicken with additional paprika.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is done and the rice is tender.  Season to taste before serving.

    Quick, easy and delicious! Was craving this and once I made it, everyone loved it. I did use chicken flavored instant rice though, we are chicken lovers.

  • A little bland, but pretty decent

    Despite the sodium in the soup, I had to add salt to bring the flavors out more. All in all, not a bad quick supper for a busy day. Would be good with cheddar cheese soup to make a chicken broccoli rice Au Gratin.

  • Easy, Delicious, and I could make it!

    I was able to follow this fast and easy recipe and it turned out so perfect. My family loved it as well. I chose the Cream of Chicken Soup with Herbs and found a new soup to love as well. Thank you!

    Unfortunately, this did not work for me. I found the amount of water was vastly insufficient; I had to keep adding more and more at 1/4c. intervals until I'd added about a full cup in total. By that time, the rice was finally done - after about an additional 30 minutes- but the flavor was completely washed out and bland. I recommend reducing the rice to 1 c and keeping the water at the recommended amount. I will not make this recipe again.
