Soooo good! Husband loved it!! Very different version of chicken and rice ... Will make that again for our friends that are coming for diner! Don't leave bad reviews if you don't like the ingredients.. I made this per the recipe. I cooked the chicken in my instant pot and seasoned it with chicken bouillon while cooking. I used instant rice and I topped half with chips and half with dried onions. The major change was that I used 2 cans of cream of mushroom instead of the other suggested soups. The peas and the celery just made it! It's a winner!

Does anyone know how to make this without canned cream of soup? Love the thickness of them, not the salt level. Thanks.

Anyone know how this casserole freezes? Sounds good but it makes too much for my family.

No flavor. Should have stuck with the classic cream of mushroom soup combo.

This was good and it made a ton. I mixed white rice with a combo package of white, brown, and rice wild. About half and half. It gave it more flavor than just white rice. It definitely needed some added seasonings. And it isn't, or at least for me, was not a 15 min prep time. Took at least 20-30 plus clean up time because of quite a few measuring cups, etc. Will make it again.

Excellent...this is the third recipe that I have made from this website this week, and again a great one!!! Only thing I did different was add some Parmesan cheese. Will be making again!

Great recipe--I had a ton of leftover rice and this was a great way to use it up. It reminded me of a recipe that my mother-in-law made--very 1950s. I am not a fan of cream of celery soup so I substituted fat-free cream of mushroom soup. It was great--my husband loved it.

family favorite and feeds a hoard, Good too with broccoli vs peas and 1 tsp cumin mixed with soups, whole new taste. I layer mine, chicken, broccoli, rice and spread soup over top. Can't beat this recipe.

Prepared this dish with a few changes and it was great. Saute onion, celery, red bell pepper, and garlic in olive oil, then reduced down white wine and chicken broth. Season to taste with salt, etc. Stir soy sauce into soup mixture and finish the recipe as directed. Very good.
