Boneless skinless chicken breasts, minute rice, 1 pkg. onion soup mix, can of cream of chicken soup, can of cream of celery soup, water.
Mix together "cream of" soups, 1 can of water, and 2 cups of minute rice (uncooked.) Pour into a buttered casserole dish.
Lay chicken breasts on top of rice mixture and sprinkle onion soup mix on top. Cover with tin foil. Don't forget that important step!
(My dad hates onions so a lot of the time my mom would just mix the onion soup in with the rice. I guess out of sight, out of mind? Either way works.)
Here is where the name Forgotten Chicken comes in. Once you have it in the casserole dish you can put it in the oven and forget it! My mom would always put it in on a low temp. (around 250-275) before we left for church and when we got home three hours later it would be ready. Or you can cook it at 350-375 (depending on your oven) for one to one and a half hours. It is hard to mess up so if you forget it is in there don't worry, it is probably still okay!
The rice on the outside edges should be slightly browned and crispy and the rice on the inside soft and moist. Serve with a side salad and a nice big slice of bread and you have yourself one tasty meal. It's my favorite! (in case I haven't mentioned that enough times in this post.)
