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.

  1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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!

  3. My family of (4) loved this the first time I made it … however it makes SO much! Do you think I could split it into two casseole dishes and freeze one? Wasn't sure about freezing sour cream??!!

  4. Found this on Pinterest! I was not expecting it to be so so so yummy! I made it for dinner last night and had leftovers for lunch today and reheated for dinner again tonight! mmmmmm delish!

  5. Just found your blog through pinterest. We live in Bham as well! Can't wait to try out several new recipes…thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

  6. 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.
