Stop what you are doing and add this French Onion Chicken and Rice Bake to you menu tonight! I am totally obsessed with this casserole! It is super simple to make; especially if you use rotisserie chicken. It took 5 minutes to whip together and it was on the table in about 20 minutes!

As I've said before, I love Kraft French Onion dip. Make sure to use your favorite brand of refrigerated French Onion dip in this recipe since that gives the dish a lot of flavor. We absolutely LOVED this casserole. I ate way too much of this! We ate the leftovers for lunch the next day and it was equally delicious.

  1. I just tried to post but it dodnt work...Let me try again....do you think if I put this in slow cooker and added uncooked rice 30 minutes before the end, it would work? Maybe 6 hours on low?

  2. Could this be assembled the night before and then baked the next day?

    1. i made mine a couple days ahead and stored in the fridge. I did not sprinkle the fried onions on top until i was ready to bake it. We enjoyed it all week. when using the leftovers i just heated in the microwave, then under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the onions on top.

  3. Hmm I wonder if this would be good with green beans in it too.

  4. Looks delish! I'm in South Africa and we don't have French Onion dip - is it a cream cheese based dip?
    We have a mean Brown Onion soup powder...just wondering how to use it instead of the Kraft dip - any advice?

    1. You should be able to use the soup powder and sour cream. The French Onion Dip is a sour cream based dip that's used as a dip for vegetables or
      potato chips.

    2. I used the envelope of onion soup mix with sour cream then measured out 1 cup of that for the casserole - worked great.

  5. This is wonderful! I used more of the french fried onion rings though. Can never have too much. This is a keeper.

    1. i don't use instant rice - i made up 3 cups of regular basmati rice. I also cooked it in chicken broth instead of water to enhance the flavor. the casserole was awesome.

  7. What about regular rice...don't care for the texture of instant.

  8. How about using quinoa instead of rice? Healthier option.

  9. Absolutely awesome! Kids ate the whole pan and requested it again this week. Definitely a favorite now!

  10. Tried this and it was okay. Definitely requires more than 1 cup of french onion dip in my opinion. Once I added more to the finished product, my family gobbled it up!
