Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Easy Chicken and Rice

on May 14, 2014

The recipe for today is from my other Grandma.

My mom was working when I was little and Grandma was my babysitter.

We lived in an apartment right next door to Grandma and Gramp so it was pretty handy.

She also taught me about crafts – quilting, knitting, crocheting, embroidery.

We did a lot of projects together.

I’m not sure what I’m trying to do in this photo, but I still make that face today!!

So funny – again – what’s with those bangs?!!!!!

I’ve had this recipe for years and never made it – so it’s about time.

This Easy Chicken and Rice IS really easy and so tasty.

Easy Baked Chicken

It’s a lot like another recipe I have posted for Baked Chicken that you can find here.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Easy Chicken and Rice

1 envelope dry Lipton Onion Soup mix

3/4 cup white rice

1 cut up chicken or chicken pieces of your choice

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can cream of chicken soup

1/2 can of milk

1/2 can of water

Sprinkle dry soup mix into 9″ x 13″ pan.

Wash rice and place over top of soup mix in pan.

Next put on the chicken pieces.

Then pour over top the soups mixed with milk and water.

Bake 2 hours at 325 degrees.

Cover with foil for the first 1 1/2 hours and then uncover and bake for last 1/2 hour.


You just layer all the ingredients into the pan.


Before and after baking you can see that the soup ends up being a great, creamy sauce for the rice.


I love these dishes that let you get it into the oven and forget it until it’s time to eat.


Hungry families should give this a try.

It is really fast food.

Put it into the oven and when the times up, you have a flavorful, moist dish that’s ready to go.

So good.
