Easy Chicken and Rice

Don't you just love easy? I especially love easy on busy weeknights when you need to get something ready in a hurry. Easy Chicken and Rice is just that, easy and simple. My favorite kind of meal.

What do you need to make Easy Chicken and Rice?
  • Chicken breast tenders or boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Chicken stock or bone broth
  • Cream of Chicken Soup Mix 
  • 1 cup cooked rice
Yes, you can absolutely use a can of condensed cream of chicken soup if you don't want to make the chicken soup mix. You can also use boneless chicken thighs in place of the chicken breast tenders if your family enjoys them more.

6 chicken breast tenders (or more depending on family size)
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 - 3/4 cup cream of chicken soup mix (depending on desired thickness)
1 cup rice, cooked according to package instructions
Parsley to sprinkle over top (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a covered baking dish with cooking spray and place chicken tenders in dish.

Whisk 2 cups chicken stock or bone broth with 1/2-3/4 cup cream of chicken soup mix and pour over chicken tenders. Cover and bake 30 minutes.

Remove cover and cook an additional 10 minutes, or until chicken is bubbly. Serve chicken over cooked rice with gravy. Sprinkle parsley over top.
