Favorite Chicken and Wild Rice Bake

Submitted by: NAPLESNANCY
Favorite Chicken and Wild Rice Bake

Introduction

This is a good company as well as family dish that I have served for 15 years. I tripled the recipe and had a "dinner for 10" a week ago. It was a hit. I am posting this at the request of my guests. There is NO CREAM SOUP in this dish. But the ingredients and steps are SIMPLE and EASY for an elegant tasting meal. Your choice whether to use the chicken with/without bones and skin. Nutritional information is based on skinless, bone-in thighs. Can use chicken breasts, thighs, halved cornish hens or 3/4" pork chops. If using pork chops cook approximately 15 minutes longer.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 chicken chicken thighs, skinless
    1 box Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice blend, original recipe
    1 packet Lipton's Onion Soup Mix
    2-1/4cups water
    ¾ cup sliced fresh mushrooms
    ¼ cup Brummel & Brown yogurt spread, melted


Tips

You can use butter instead of the Brummel & Brown spread but it will change the nutritional information. You can reduce the sodium by using a Copycat recipe of the onion soup mix made with low sodium, no sodium bouillon.


Directions

Empty wild rice into bottom of casserole pan and sprinkle the enclosed package of seasoning over it.

Add onion soup mix, melted Yogurt spread and sliced mushrooms. Mix well. Add water and mix well again.

Nestle chicken pieces in mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
