Chicken and Rice Casserole


How many ways can you make chicken?  Well, I have put together a simple casserole, so now we can add one more to the list!


1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/3 cups water
3/4 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp ground pepper
3/4 tsp cajun seasoning
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into smaller pieces
1 cup French's French Fried onions, crushed


1)  Stir soup, water, rice, onion powder, black pepper, cajun seasoning, and vegetables in a large bowl.  Spray of 13 x 9 pan with non-stick spray and pour mixture into it.

2)  Top the rice mixture with the chicken.  Season the chicken pieces with additional cajun seasoning.

3)  Cover.

4)  Bake at 375 F for 50 minutes or until chicken and rice are done.  Top with crushed onion rings and bake for 5 more minutes.

5)  Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes.  Stir rice before serving.

6)  Enjoy!

Note:  I didn't have mixed vegetables, so I used frozen broccoli florets.  Tasted great!  I doubled the recipe to cover 5 adults and still have enough for 2 leftover lunches.

Recipe adapted from Campbell's Possibilities.
