"This recipe was in an old TOH compilation of recipes, but it used a cut up chicken instead of b/s breasts in the original recipe. I prefer using bone-in chicken pieces - I take off the skin and all the fat I can - and I add a can of mushroom soup and either chopped fresh onion, a couple tablespoons of onion soup mix, or about a tablespoon or so of dried onion flakes. I also find that I need to bake it longer - maybe as much as 30 minutes more - or there is some slightly raw rice in it. You can add one half extra cup of either milk or water, too. It is a rather bland dish, but it has a comforting appeal and isn't too much work to put together. Sometimes comfort and ease of preparation is what I'm looking for! It makes lots, too, and is filling."

"This is a favorite of my husbands. He cannot stand real spicy food, and when he is having a bad time with his tummy, this meal makes him smile."

"Very bland....I made for Father's Day dinner and the only 2 who liked it were the ones that had special seasonings to speak of, no pizzazz"
