Chicken and rice is one of those dishes that I love to fix when I need something in the oven quickly! This Easy Chicken and Rice recipe has little prep time and taste amazing! A great combination of onion soup mix, instant rice, and cream of mushroom soup. The chicken is coated in butter, salt, pepper, and paprika.
The first thing I do to get this dish in the oven is to coat my chicken breast by placing them in some melted butter that has salt, pepper, and paprika in it.
Next, I mix the onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup, water, and sherry in a casserole dish.
Next, add in the instant rice and place your chicken pieces on top.
Bake in the oven! Serve this with a nice vegetable side and you have a complete meal for the entire family. The one thing I will mention is to check your chicken as you get closer to the end of the cooking time. The chicken can dry out if you bake to long.
