no peek chicken rice casserole
This dish is so easy, the only challenging part is not taking a little peek while it’s cooking away in your oven. Delicious tender chicken, fluffy flavorful rice, all simmering away in a creamy sauce that only requires a can opener to make. Chicken and rice casseroles are so nostalgic for me, they were my mom’s favorite to pop in the oven after a long day. I wanted to do my mom justice with this dish, so let’s get into it!
why can’t i take a peek?
Believe me the aroma this will fill your house with as it bakes away is going to be so tempting, but you’ve got to trust the process. We cover this dish with aluminum foil before popping it in the oven which is going to create a bunch of steam. This steam is what will allow the rice to cook so it’s super important that it stays in place for the entire cook time!

How to make it :
In a greased 9 x 13 pan, mix the box of rice, cans of celery and mushroom soup and
one can of water. I always add the extra can of water because I like moist rice.
Arrange the raw chicken on top of the rice mixture….
Cover and seal with foil……
