This week’s WINNER WINNER EASY DINNER was shared by Nicole!

Nicole is from Southern California and is married to her high school sweetheart Tyler! (HOW CUTE IS THAT?!) They have a beautiful, lively 2 year old daughter who they love to take camping and fishing. She originally found this recipe on Daily Dose of Pepper, but altered it a little by using regular cream of chicken soup! Thanks for taking the time to share it with us!

It is a delicious Easy Chicken and Rice casserole. It fits ALL THREE of our categories, it is cheap, easy, and a family favorite of theirs so this one is definitely a winner!

We tried it out as well so we could offer you so tips! Below is the updated, delicious recipe with a couple of our suggestions at the bottom!

Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 6


  • 1 10 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 10 oz can water
  • 1 C white rice
  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken breast, chopped in pieces
  • 1 packet onion soup mix, dry


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  2. In a large bowl wisk together cream of chicken soup, water, and onion soup mix. 

  3. Mix in rice and bite-size pieces of chicken.

  4. Pour into casserole dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour.

Here are a few of our suggestions:

*Make sure that you stir the rice well so it is not stuck at the bottom of the casserole dish so it does not burn to the bottom.

*If you’re feeding a small family, divide the mixture between two casserole dishes and freeze one so you have a last-minute dinner on hand. If you have a large family, double it and do the same. After thawing, re-warm in the oven covered with foil until warm all the way through.

* Don’t skimp on the water, no one wants to crunch hard, dry rice in their teeth!


Thanks Nicole! Who’s going to share their favorite go-to dinner next?
