This chicken and rice casserole recipe caught my eye because it doesn’t have the typical canned soup ingredients which in my mind makes it a lot healthier.

This recipe requires very little prep time and there is a good chance you will have all of the ingredients on hand.

Ingredients
  • 1 cut up chicken (3 ½ to 4 pounds)
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2⅓ cups water
  • 1 ½ cups long grain white rice

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Place four in a shallow dish like a pie plate and roll chicken in flour to coat. Using the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat cook chicken until browned on both sides.
  3. While chicken is browning mix the rest of the ingredients together in a large bowl and pour the mixture into a 13 x 9 casserole dish lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Arrange the chicken over the rice mixture, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until rice is done and dark meat registers 180F.
  5. Let rest for 10 minutes and serve hot.
