Easy Chicken and Yellow Rice
Oh this recipe rocks! Easy Chicken and Yellow Rice is just that. E-A-S-Y! It uses only 5 ingredients and can be oven ready in about 5 minutes. What it lacks in ingredients, it more than makes up for in taste! This delectable main dish uses chicken and chicken broth (I used homemade). It also includes saffron rice, mushrooms and a can of cream of mushroom and chicken soup. Yes, you read that right. Campbell’s makes a condensed soup that includes mushrooms and chicken. It’s perfect for this recipe.
Back in October, I had some leftover rotisserie chicken I was trying to use up. as it happened I had a packet of saffron rice, a can of the mushroom-chicken soup and some leftover chicken broth in my refrigerator. The recipe turned out so well, I decided to make it again and take pictures! This time I added a can of mushrooms.
I made this the week of my garage sale. One of the nights before the sale, my neighbor was helping me with pricing and organizing items. I asked her if she was hungry. (She had come over after work). She was hungry, so I served her some of this dish. She loved it so I thought I better make it again and post to my blog.
I ended up making it the following week. I was making a meal for a gal in our neighborhood who had hip replacement surgery. I halved the meal and took half to our neighbors as well, as a thank you for all of their help with the garage sale. Anyone who comes to your house at 6 a.m. to help set up tables and organize things is a friend for life, right? I served it with Green Beans and onions (a recipe I’ve whipped up since early married days). I added Pear Salad Halves, Marinated Veggie Salad (which both raved over) some Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread and a Pineapple Explosion.
Both families raved over the meal and enjoyed everything for days. 🙂 All I can say, is this is a terrific main dish recipe. It’s easy to make and heats up wonderfully for leftovers. We couldn’t get enough of it!
Easy Chicken and Yellow Rice is fantastic. This easy recipe should become a staple in your house!

Stir ingredients to combine.
Add chicken broth and chicken.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Pour mixture into a greased 9×13″ baking dish. Stir ingredients so that the rice is distributed evenly throughout the casserole.
Cover casserole with foil. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees. Remove foil and fluff rice with a fork. Bake an additional 15-30 minutes or until the liquid is completely absorbed. It’s possible that the casserole can be done in an hour.
