Chicken Rice-a-Roni Casserole


I found this recipe on Tasty Kitchen.  I immediately knew I had to try it because it combines three of my favorite foods - chicken, rice-a-roni and French fried onions!  This was super quick and easy.  I used rotisserie chicken and this was ready in no time flat.  We both really enjoyed this; especially the crunchy onions on top.



Chicken Rice-a-Roni Casserole
adapted from Tasty Kitchen
(Printable Recipe)


1 box chicken flavor Rice-A-Roni
1 can cream of chicken soup (I use 98% fat-free)
1 cup sour cream (can use low fat)
3-4 cups cooked, chopped chicken (or 1 whole Rotisserie Chicken)
1 (6 oz) can French fried onions

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Prepare Rice-A-Roni according to package directions. Add soup, sour cream and chicken.  Stir to combine.   Spread rice mixture in a lightly sprayed 9x13 pan.  Top rice with fried onions.  Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.

  1. Looks really good Steph. Bev likes to start with Rice a Roni for Spanish rice. We should be passing thru your neck of the woods later this AM on the last leg of our trip home.

  5. Do you always eat a half cup of those fried onions before using them in a recipe? I can't help myself.

  12. I remember my mom made this growing up. But I think it had ground beef. So I'm not sure what the change (if at all) would be for the cream of soup?? Wow. Throwback to the 90s. Now I want this!

  13. Both hubby & I loved this! Today I substituted ground beef for the chicken, beef flavor Rice-a-Roni for the chicken, and cream of mushroom soup for the cream of chicken. It was just as good.....just a variation. :)

  14. We aren't a fan of the onions, do you think another topping would work? Any suggestions?
