I posted this pic earlier this week on my Instagram and got a lot of comments wanting the recipe so here it is! Not to toot my own horn but when I brought the leftovers to work everyone in the room was wanting a bite. HA!
As I am sure you noticed this recipe contains another Rice ‘N Easy rice mix from Riceland, this one the Long Grain and Wild Rice Mix. I love using these mixes as part of a main dish instead of just as a side. Also, this is not a sponsored post, I just really love Riceland Rice ‘N Easy mixes!
So back to the recipe…this is one of those amazingly simple, throw everything in a dish, stick it in the oven, and forget about it until it’s done. I don’t know about you but those are my favorite kinds of recipes. SO what is it? This recipe is my Chicken & Wild Rice!! I usually serve it with a side of green beans just to brighten up the plate. HA!
To make this super yummy dish you just throw a box of Long Grain and Wild Rice (and it’s seasoning), a can of cream of celery, a can of cream of mushroom, a can of water, and 2 TBSP of melted butter in a bowl and mix it up. At the same time you take another 2 TBSP of melted butter and rub it all over a glass baking dish and then put about a third of the mix on it and then top it with the chicken. The recipe calls for chicken breasts but I used tenderloins and it turned out just fine!
You top the chicken with the rest of the mix, tightly wrap the dish in aluminum foil, and bake it at 375* for 90 minutes, no peeking!! When you pull it out and remove the foil you will be greeted with a bubbling yumminess that you won’t want to quit smelling. It’s that good. Pinky promise!
Let is sit for a few minutes, plate it, and eat it! The leftovers are just as good and juicy. Trust me on this one.
And that is it for my Chicken and Wild Rice recipe. Tell me what you think about it!!
Have you tried any of Riceland’s Rice ‘N Easy mixes yet??
