French onion chicken and rice casserole
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 80 minutes
Serves: 4-6
2 cups uncooked long grain white rice
2 cups milk
2 (10 -ounce) cans of cream of chicken soup
1 packet French Onion Soup mix
1 pound chicken tenderloins
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese
1 teaspoon parsley
1. Coat a 9x13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine milk, rice, soup mix and cream of chicken soup in a bowl. Mix until ingredients are combined.
3. Pour the rice and milk mixture into the bottom of your greased casserole dish. Place chicken tenderloins in an even layer on top.
4. Cover with foil and bake for an hour. About halfway through the bake time, stir the dish and put it back in the oven.
5. After 60 minutes, top your dish with cheese and replace the tin foil. Bake for an additional 15 minutes.
6. Top with chopped parsley to garnish.
Pro tip: Sometimes the rice may not soften enough during baking. If this happens, simply keep your dish covered (tightly) on top of your stove for about ten minutes and allow the steam in the pan to work its magic.
