Chicken and Rice Recipe: Good Comfort Food

Updated on October 2, 2014

I love comfort food and this is a family favorite. I use it often at potlucks and when taking a meal to a sick friend. It's so easy make, and you can be as creative as you want to be by adding other ingredients you may enjoy.

I will give an alternate for the cream of chicken soup if you are looking to cut calories and fat.


  • 6 boneless, skinless, chicken thighs, whole or cut up
  • 1 cup white rice, (you can also use brown rice, or coucous
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken or Mushroom, or Creamy Chicken Mushroom soup
  • 1 can mushrooms, or you can use fresh sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup celery, sliced
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • Alternate to soup
  • 1 cup regular or low sodium chicken broth
  • corn starch, as directed on package
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper


  1. Wash and pat dry with paper towel chicken pieces. Set aside.
  2. Cook rice according to package directions. You may substitute with another rice if you prefer.
  3. While rice is cooking, saute onion and celery in 1 tablespoon of butter or olive oil.
  4. Add mushrooms to the saute when onion and celery are nearly done. Set aside.
  5. When rice is done, pour into greased casserole dish.
  6. Add sauteed veggies and peas and mix. If you have decided to cut chicken into small pieces, you may add those now. If whole, wait.
  7. Mix soup and water, pour 3/4 of it over rice and veggie mixture. * If you are using broth corn starch mixture, mix in white pepper and pour that over rice and veggies.
  8. Place whole chicken thighs (if you've chosen not to cut them up) on top of rice mixture.
  9. Pour remaining soup/water or broth/corn starch mixture over chicken.
  10. Cover and bake at 350 degrees.
