Busy Day Chicken

I received this recipe from my sister as she had made this for me once a long time ago. I was shocked how simple it was and how yummy it was that when I made it this week, I knew I had to share it with you all.

I made this the other night as I wanted something basic but full of flavor. Something I could leave and let be as I had the kids all day and didn’t have time to cook dinner by 6:15. I had this meal prepped and ready for the oven.


  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 ½ cups water
  • 1 packet onion soup mix
  • 1 can cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken)

Preheat oven to 325** (convection oven instructions below)

Add two cups rice and 2 tbsp butter to a greased 9×13 casserole dish.


Add 3 1/2 cups water and stir.


Lay chicken on top of rice and sprinkle with Onion Soup Mix.


Add 1 can cream of mushroom and stir.


Bake at 325 degrees for roughly 1 1/2-2 hours. 

Enjoy with a fresh garden salad.

**If using convection oven bake at 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until juices in chicken run clear.
