Indulge in the warmth of a traditional family favorite with our Hearty Homestyle Chicken & Rice Bake. This recipe brings back the nostalgia of grandma’s cooking, combining tender chicken, creamy soup, and fluffy rice into a casserole that’s perfect for any day of the week. It’s a simple yet satisfying dish that promises to gather everyone around the dinner table.



  1. Commence by assembling all required components.
  2. Set your oven to a temperature of 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) to preheat. Apply a light coating of oil to the interior base and sides of your baking dish.
  3. In the greased dish, mix together the chicken, water, uncooked rice, and all three varieties of condensed soup—chicken, celery, and mushroom. Season the mixture with a dash of salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Distribute slices of butter across the surface of the mixture for an even layer.
  5. Place the dish in the oven, now heated, and allow it to bake. The goal is for the rice to absorb the liquid and become tender, and for the chicken to be thoroughly cooked, which should take between 60 to 75 minutes. Once removed from the oven, let the dish stand and cool for a period of 10 to 15 minutes prior to serving.


  • – For a golden-brown finish, you can remove the foil in the last 15 minutes of baking.
    – Feel free to add vegetables like peas or carrots to the rice mixture for added nutrition and flavor.

Can I use brown rice instead of white rice?

Yes, but keep in mind that brown rice generally requires more cooking liquid and a longer cooking time.

Is it possible to prepare this dish ahead of time?

Absolutely! Assemble the casserole, cover, and refrigerate. When ready to cook, allow it to come to room temperature and then bake as directed.

Can I freeze this casserole?

This dish can be frozen before baking. Wrap it well and freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator before baking, and add extra time as needed to ensure it’s heated through.
