Chicken Wild Rice Bake Recipe

This homey combination is one of my most requested chicken recipes. It's a snap to assemble using a boxed rice mix. Plus, it's low in calories. —Joyce Unruh of Shipshewana, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 package (6 ounces) long grain and wild rice mix
  • 2 medium carrots, shredded
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas

  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1. In a bowl, combine rice mix with contents of seasoning packet, carrots, peas and water chestnuts. Combine water and soup; pour over rice mixture and mix well. Transfer to a shallow 3-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 25 minutes.

"This simple recipe was good for a quick weeknight meal. I didn't have garlic on hand so I just mixed garlic salt with pepper and sprinkled that over the chicken. I also used a butter & herb long grain & wild rice mix."

"This recipe looked appetizing in the book, but I didn't like it for 2 reasons. First, I didn't like the taste of the seasoning packet from the wild rice mix box (I used Uncle Ben's Original) - it was way too strong! Second, the chicken lacked something - salt maybe? Probably this recipe could be tweaked to be good, but I won't waste more time on it."
