I thought about posting this recipe the other day, on my anniversary, because it was supposed to be served at my wedding reception, but because of electrical problems (my mother-in-law didn't make it ahead of time like she was supposed to and shorted something out at the old farmhouse that we had the wedding and reception at, so it didn't cook right), it didn't end up being served, so I decided to hold the recipe for another day. Appropriate, since we had the failed leftovers from our wedding for many, many other days!
Baked Chicken on Rice
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup cream of mushroom soup*
1 1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup uncooked white rice
1 cup fresh mushrooms
Cut the chicken into chunks. Mix all ingredients in a casserole dish. Cover tightly and bake at 350 (don't need to preheat the oven) for 1 hour. Remove the cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
This pairs well with green beans and/or peaches.
*if using canned cream of mushroom soup, you can adjust the amount of soup to use it up rather than letting it go to waste. Just reduce the amount of milk to maintain the same amount of liquid. You can also reduce the amount of cream of mushroom soup if your homemade stuff is a stronger flavor than you'd like in this. Just add more milk to compensate.
