Old Fashioned Chicken and Rice

You know when you taste something that warms your soul and it instantly makes you smile - it tastes homey and delicious and it sends sunshine into your stomach and rainbows sprout from your ears? Oh wait, you've never had rainbows sprout from your ears? Okay, anyways, I have one of those recipes to share. A recipe that's been passed down from one generation to another. Meme is my husband's paternal grandmother and she's incredible in the kitchen. Part of her legacy are the recipes she's perfected over the years. I'm so honored that she's decided to share some of those recipes with me, like her Chicken and Rice.

If you're looking for a tasty, meal that's easy to prepare and cleanup but not tight on the wallet then this old fashioned favorite could be the answer.

2 lbs of chicken tenders
2 boxes of Uncle Ben's Wild Rice Original Recipe
1 (10 oz) can of cream of chicken soup 
1 (10 oz) can of cream of mushroom soup
2.5 C low sodium chicken broth
2 tsp lemon pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Mix the rice and their flavor packets, both cans of soup and the chicken broth in a large bowl. I personally use a whisk to make sure all the ingredients are well incorporated. Pour the mixture into a 9x13 baking dish.

Lay the chicken tenders side by side on top of the mixture, almost touching. They will slowly sink down so there's no need to push them into the mixture. Cover with aluminum foil, shinny side down. Bake for an hour.

Remove from oven and take off the aluminum foil. Sprinkle the lemon pepper over everything and put the pan back in the oven for another 30 minutes, uncovered. 

Let it sit for 10 minutes and stir slightly to make sure everything is even and incorporated.

Serve and enjoy!

It's simple and delicious and tastes just like something you might have at Meme's house. Looking for some other great recipes? Check out my recipe collection here
