How do you make Chicken Rice Bake?

  • Combine broth and cream of chicken soup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir until smooth.

  • Layer a 9x13 pan as follows: rice, mushrooms, celery, chicken pieces. Pour the broth-soup mixture over the top and sprinkle with a packet of dry onion soup mix.

  • Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees F.

  • Uncover and bake for an additional 45 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through. Enjoy!

Can I replace long grain and wild rice with white or brown rice?

Here are a few guidelines for substituting other types of rice with a long grain and wild rice mix. If you can find wild rice, I recommend using it. It adds a delicious flavor and texture to this dish that is hard to beat:

  • If you use 1 cup of brown rice (regular long grain, NOT pre-cooked), add 1/2 cup water to the broth-soup mixture.

  • I don’t recommend using white rice for this recipe since cooking times vary so much. You’ll either end up with mushy rice or under-cooked chicken.
