Nancy, It's been some time since I've made this recipe. This is a recipe that I made on Sundays because it is so easy to make the kids were young with Sundays begin busy.

Delicious Chicken and Rice Recipe

1 cup uncooked white rice, I used brown rice
1, 10.75 oz, can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 7/8 cups water, I used chicken stock
1, 1 oz, package dry onion soup mix
4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread rice in the bottom of a 9"x13" inch baking dish. Rinse chicken and pat dry; arrange chicken pieces on top of rice. Mix soup and water together and pour over chicken and rice Sprinkle dry onion soup mix. Cover and seal TIGHTLY with foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. OR You can cut up the chicken breast including the cubed chicken in rice mixture cooking for the same time. You can put the rice, the can soup, the dry onion soup and stock in a bowl mixing well. Pour this mixture in the casserole dish then putting the chicken breast on top of rice mixture. Cook at 350 degree at 1 to 1 1/2 hours. You can make this in a crock pot or slow cooker cooking for 6 hours.
