    I've made this for years. I vary sometimes but always come back to the basic which are skinless boneless breast (4), 2 cans of Cream of mushroom soup, spread some mayonnaise on the top of the chicken. Spread Long grain rice and wild rice combo on the bottom of the baking dish. I use the 90 second Uncle Ben's. Place the chicken over the rice, sprinkle Italian breadcrumbs over the mayonnaise chicken. Mix can of mushroom soup with 1/2 cup of chicken broth, add a tablespoon of minced garlic, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cover with aluminum and cook at 400 pre-heated degrees for 40 minutes. Very tasty and moist chicken and gravy for the rice. Served with a salad or broccoli on the side. Enjoy.

    I make the same recipe but with pork chops, onions and garlic. I will try it with chicken.

  • Yum-o!

    The important thing is that you use chicken breast HALVES. If you try the whole chicken breast, it takes forever to cook all the way through. So filet your chicken or use chicken breast tenderloins. I add a can of drained mushrooms too and call this mushroom chicken. Good with rice or noodles, and a green veggie.

  • Easy and delicious!

    Made this for my family and they loved it! I served it with garlic and herb riced cauliflower and some veggies and it was an awesome meal. I seasoned the chicken prior to baking with some Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning. Trying it tonight with broccoli cheese soup and am serving it with 4 cheese riced cauliflower and green beans. Can’t wait to see how it tastes with this soup!
