This Forgotten Chicken is a one-pan meal packed with flavor. Simple to prepare, perfect for busy nights, weekend dinner, or just about anytime! I personally, love one-dish meals. Anytime I can make a recipe that is both the main course and side dish, it is a winner in my book.

I’m not sure what “forgotten chicken” means, but when I came across this recipe, it was the first thing that caught my attention. After many times making this, I’m sure the name refers to the fact that you just throw everything into the casserole dish and forget about it! The oven really does all the cooking here.


1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 cups Minute rice (I used brown rice)

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can of water (use one of the soup cans)

1 tbsp. butter

1 envelope Lipton onion soup mix


Using the 1 tbsp. butter, butter a 9 x 13 baking pan.

In a medium bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, 1 can of water, and Minute rice.

Pour mixture into buttered pan.

Place chicken breasts on top of the mixture.

Sprinkle Lipton onion soup evenly on top of chicken breasts.

Cover pan with foil and place in a preheated oven, 350.

Cook for about 1- 1 1/2 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through. And Enjoy.
