It’s hard to beat this foil-packet meal from Stacey Smith in Batavia, New York for convenience…or even campfire fun. TIP: USE THE REMAINING ½ CAN OF SOUP (AND HALF THE WATER CALLED FOR) TO MAKE A SINGLE SERVING OR TO ADD TO GRAVY.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
MAKES:2 servings

  • 1/2 cup uncooked instant rice
  • 2/3 cup condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese

"I followed the directions with one exception. I cut up the chicken into bite-sized pieces. It took an extra 10 minutes in the oven. I also had to stir it as I had some raw chicken in the middle of the packet. Maybe I needed to spread all the ingredients out more and will try that next time I make this. My daughter, who is picky, liked this recipe and said she would like this again."

"I doubled this recipe so the cooking times were way off for me but it was a winner in my house. I marinated the breast in a garlic marinade all day prior to cooking as well."

"This sounds so good, but can I make it ahead and freeze, and take camping with us

"I like saucy dishes, so I double the soup mixture. I also bake @ 450 for about 40 minutes or so depending on thickness of chicken so that it is more tender. And when it is done baking, we smother in cheese. This is sooo delicious!"
