Baked Chicken & Rice Instructions
To get started on your Baked Chicken & Rice, first, gather your tools. You will need:
- 9 x 13 casserole dish for baking
1.) Preheat the Oven
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (this step can be done before or after Step 4).
2.) Mix Ingredients Together in the Casserole Dish
Combine your dry brown rice, water, cream of mushroom soup, salt, and pepper in the casserole dish. Whisk together until ingredients are thoroughly combined.
3.) Add the Raw Chicken Breasts
Place the raw chicken breasts in the mixture and push them down into the rice. Season one side of the chicken with salt and pepper to taste, flip over, and season the other side.
4.) Let the Mixture Sit for 30 Minutes
Because this recipe is using organic dry brown rice, it will need to soak for half an hour.
5.) Cover With Foil and Bake
Once all of your ingredients are combined and the chicken is added to the dish, cover the casserole dish with tinfoil and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour and 20-45 minutes. (Additional 25 minutes if rice seems undercooked).
Tips for Checking for Doneness & Serving
After the hour and 20-45 minutes is up, check your chicken and rice dish for doneness. It should appear slightly browned and the chicken should be thoroughly cooked. Check the chicken by cutting into the center. If the juices are clear, the chicken is done.
If you want, you can shred the chicken and mix it back into the rice, or simply serve as-is in whole chicken pieces.
