I’m eager to share this Chicken and Rice Casserole with you!
I have this strange new food passion.


Seriously Rice.

It sounds very random I mean, I’ve always liked rice, it’s not just something I have ever really craved or cooked unless it’s my bacon fried rice. <- There can never be enough in it!

Recently, however, I’m obsessive.

I think it has some relation with white rice made in my quick pot. This is the most accurate rice till now. Will I occasionally share my recipe?

Anyway, my family is getting sick of plain white rice, so I thought I would continue my passion and make something with a little more excitement and taste.

My favorite way to serve dinner – Enter the casserole. 😉

Does anyone serve casseroles for dinner several times a week, or is it just me?

I think it’s just me.

You see, my mother does not like casseroles and is never given them as children, so I’m just ready for the lost time.

Apart from this, I am from the Midwest, and I think that it is essential that we basically prefer casserole around these parts.

This lubricant and rice receptacle is pure comfit food and it is completely easy to walk together.

I have faced this chicken and rice recipe with my favorite small packet of onion soup mix.

What about those onion soup blends that are so delicious? I like to use them.

Those small packs mixed with some sour cream are also running for a favorite dip. Next to the farm dip made of dry farm powder.

Obviously, I have a problem in those small packets of spices.

This creamy chicken rice casserole is a new family favorite. It's total comfort food and is great for chilly nights.

Anyway, this chicken rice casserole comes with a small number of ingredients that you already have in your pantry. I think you will love it as much as we did. Perfect for overall comfort food and cold day

I have heard about this recipe from a lot of readers because it has gone viral on Facebook. (Are you following me on facebook? You should!)

This recipe is getting a mixed review – those of you who are successful with cooking the rice while loving this recipe. But, there is a group of people who are having problems cooking their rice properly.

My biggest tip to make sure that the recipe is cooked properly is to ensure that the foil is tight. To cook that rice properly, you need steam to stay inside the pan.

And if this is not done enough then cook it for a while. Chicken is cooking with rice, so I know that many people are worried that it will dry after being dry for so long in the oven. But, all this is in steam and liquid and it is not really dry. It comes nice and tender, the way we like it.

So, with those tips, I have had success with this recipe! It’s really a maintenance!

let’s enjoy!


PLEASE NOTE: The rice will not cook through in the allotted time if the foil is not tightly sealed during baking. The chicken should not dry out as it's nestled down in the rice mixture and sealed tightly with foil, keeping in the steam. If, after the full 75 minutes of cooking, the rice is still not quite tender, keep it covered tightly with foil outside of the oven for an extra ten minutes. The steam inside the dish will finish off the rice.
