Question by angelcourtney4317: What is a good Chicken and rice recipe using rice-a-roni?
Or even a chicken casserole recipe using rice a roni? I have a pound of boneless chicken breasts to use with the rice a roni. What can I make with the two? (I have other things to add as well, but these are the two main things.)

Can you help? Leave your own answer in the comments!

  1. I live in California so Rice a Roni is a way of life for me.

    1 pkg. chicken Rice-a-Roni
    1 (4 oz.) can mushrooms
    1 pkg. boneless chicken
    1 (10 1/2 oz.) can chicken gravy
    2 tbsp. butter
    In large frying pan with cover, brown chicken in butter. Remove chicken. Cook in chicken drippings Rice-a-Roni as package directions, except adding drained mushrooms after rice is browned.
    When rice is done, in a casserole dish, place chicken on bottom, cover with rice, pour gravy over the top. Place in oven under broiler until gravy is brown and bubbly.

    1 box chicken flavor Rice-a-Roni (use real butter in preparation)
    4 chicken breasts
    1 cup celery, chopped fine
    6 green onions, chopped fine
    1 jar marinated artichokes (tender parts only — reserve 2 tbsp marinade)
    1 small jar mayonnaise
    Note: Best made a day ahead
    Cook Rice-a-Roni according to package directions. After cooking, set aside to cool completely. When cool, transfer to a large mixing bowl. At the same time, cook chicken breasts (cover with water and 2 tsp salt — water should be about 2 inches over chicken). Bring breasts to boil, then lower heat to avoid them getting tough. Large breasts can be cut into smaller pieces to reduce cooking time. When chicken is done, set aside to cool completely and cube.
    Peel celery and chop fine, chop onions fine, cut up artichoke hearts. Add chopped chicken and all chopped vegetables to the Rice-a-Roni in the large bowl. Add mayonnaise and 2 tbsp of reserved artichoke marinade, stir together and season to taste with lemon pepper. Refrigerate an hour or more before serving. Delicious with sliced tomatoes and fresh French bread.
