I’m not sure what “forgotten chicken” means, but when I came across this recipe, it was the first thing that caught my attention. After many times making this, I’m sure the name refers to the fact that you just throw everything into the casserole dish and forget about it! The oven really does all the cooking here.

Almost no prep work required other than opening cans. The flavor of the rice is amazing and the onion soup gives the chicken breasts the most delicious flavor.

Believe me when I tell you that you will not find an easier and tastier recipe.

Just imagine rice and chicken breasts with cream of mushrooms and cream of chicken. Nothing else needed to give this dish flavor, and the best part, you will mix and “forget all about it”.

All this recipe needs to be a complete meal, is a salad or steamed veggies. If you want to keep your calories low, steam some broccoli florets and carrot slices and you’re good to go!


1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups Minute rice
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of water (I use one of the soup cans)
1 envelope Lipton onion soup mix
1 tbsp butter


Preheat oven to 350F
Grease a 9×13” casserole dish
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the cream of mushroom, cream of chicken soup, Minute rice, and one can of water.
Mix well and pour into the prepared casserole dish. Arrange the chicken breasts over the rice mixture.
Sprinkle the lipton onion soup mix evenly over the chicken breasts
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
