Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 40 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup 14.5 oz
  • 1 soup can of water
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix 1.25 oz
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add Cream of Chicken soup, soup can of water, rice, and dry onion soup mix packet to greased pan. Whisk ingredients together.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add the four chicken breasts when the pan is hot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brown each side for 1-2 minutes or until the outside has started to brown slightly. You do not want to fully cook the chicken. (Honestly, this step is completely optional, but I prefer to do it because the dish looks more appetizing!)
  4. Using tongs, place browned chicken breasts on top of rice mixture in greased 9×13 pan.
  5. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 1 ½ hours or until rice is tender and chicken breasts are fully cooked.
