Tempt My Tummy Tuesday… Savory Herb Chicken and Rice Casserole

by Lisa on August 27, 2012

Tempt my Tummy Tuesdays

I have been trying to cook strictly from my pantry and freezer, this past week.  I wanted to use up what we had before making a trip to the store.  I was successful and came up with a few new dishes.  This Savory Herb Chicken and Rice Casserole was one such dish. 
I found a box of Lipton Recipe Secrets, Savory Herb with Garlic in the pantry and decided to liven up my traditional chicken and rice casserole.  It was a GREAT change.  I made several substitutions to my regular recipe updating a family favorite.

Updated Chicken and Ricke Casserole

Savory Herb Chicken and Rice Casserole
Recipe type: entree, casserole, poultry
Tasty way to liven up a chicken and rice casserole.
  • 6 -8 chicken thighs
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 soup can of milk
  • 1 pkg. Lipton Savory Herb with Garlic soup mix (Or 1 pkg. dry onion soup mix if you don't have the other.)
  • 1½ cups uncooked regular white rice
  1. Put rice in greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Mix cream of mushroom soups with milk; pour over the rice and stir to mix. Sprinkle the savory herb soup mix on top, saving a small amount to sprinkle over the chicken. Place the chicken thighs on top. Now sprinkle remaining savory herb soup mix on top of the chicken. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1½ hours. Remove foil for the last 15 minutes to let the chicken brown.

I made this tonight! While the taste was great, the rice was not done at 1 1/2hours. I would highly suggest using already cooked rice in this dish unless you have the time to wait for it to cook properly in the oven. Otherwise, your rice will be crunchy and I don’t like crunchy rice… Thanks for sharing the recipe!


Misty January 6, 2013 at 6:36 pm

Uh oh …. I take mine out of the oven in 20 minutes …. I hope the rice is done!! I have a hungry family right now …. on another note it smells delicious!


Misty January 6, 2013 at 7:18 pm

Ok well I agree, the rice should be cooked before. Mine was also crunchy lol — but the flavor was WONDERFUL!
