This Old School Chicken and Rice Casserole is seriously delicious! We absolutely LOVED this casserole. We ate it for lunch and leftover for a couple of days afterwards. SO good! This casserole is super easy to make. It was ready to go in the oven in minutes. This makes a TON. Next time I might split it between two pans and freeze one for later.

I used a whole rotisserie chicken in this casserole. If you don't have a rotisserie chicken, you will need about 4 cups of cooked chicken for the casserole. This recipe uses three cans of Cream of Whatever soup. I always buy the 98% fat free or Healthy Choice to cut down on fat and sodium. Our favorite part of the casserole was all the yummy parmesan cheese on top! YUM! This was a huge hit in our house. Chicken Legs has already requested this again for dinner. I can't wait!

  3. The rice needs to be uncooked and minute rice and instant rice are the same thing. :)

  4. Great easy dish. Love the flavors. My chicken came out a little dry. Any suggestions?

  5. Any way to adapt this recipe using regular rice (we don't like the texture of instant rice)?
    Sounds delish.

    1. I've only made this with instant rice.

    2. I just made this fantastic dish with regular rice. I used 4 cups of cooked rice and I then reduced the liquid(milk and water) by half. This allowed the cooked rice to still absorb some liquid, not dry out, without being all soupy.

    3. Shall, Minute Rice Brand has a Premium Long Grain version (different than the regular!) That actually has the texture of regular rice with the convenience of Minute Rice. I use it all the time. It's harder to find in stores but SOOO much better.

  6. I'm not sure that I can get cream of celery soup where I am. I don't recall seeing it. Can I use 2 cream of chicken?

  7. Could you add broccoli or some other vegetable or would that throw off the liquid amount for the rice to bake?

    1. I think broccoli would be fine. If you use frozen, make sure it is already thawed and drained.

  10. This recipe makes way to much for one person. Can you freeze the left overs?

  11. I'm not crazy about Cream of Celery soup, but Cream of Onion is wonderful. Some frozen veggies and maybe some French Fried Onion Rings on top wouldn't hurt either. Sounds like a keeper :o)

  12. Is there a way to make and freeze before cooking or would I need to bake and then warm later?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Can I use raw chicken tenderloins, regular rice and put it all in the oven to bake? Or would that not taste or cook the same?

    1. I'm sure you can. I've never tried it in the slow Cooker so I don't know how long it would need to cook.
