Chicken and Rice Casserole

Okay so my husband LOVES this. It is super easy, but it does take awhile to cook. We didn't have any Onion Soup mix. We found a substitute recipe online which saved us even more $$!

For the Lipton Onion Soup Mix:
2 tsp onion powder, a pinch of curry, sugar, celery salt, pepper, and garlic salt. We also used Beef Stock instead of water.

Chicken and Rice Casserole
About 1 1/2 lbs of chicken $3.29
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup $0.69
1 can water
2 C minute rice $1.82
Onion Soup packet

Grease casserole dish. Combine rice, soup, water and soup mix, then pour in dish. Set chicken on top. Sprinkle with paprika and lemon pepper and a couple pats of butter.

Cook at 350 for 1-1 1/5 hours. Check periodically to add water so the rice doesn't get too dry.

I forgot to take a picture, but here is one of the three Tupperware I made to take to lunch in the upcoming days. I served it with steamed broccoli and carrots.
Chicken, Soup, Rice, and Beef Stock = $6.80
Broccoli and Carrots =$2.00
TOTAL = $8.80!!

We like this one too. It is nostalgic! I think you could use regular rice instead of minute. I mean, unless you have minute rice on hand.
