Monday Meals - Chicken and Rice

Good Monday afternoon everyone. It is time once again to post a totally delish, easy to make dish! Today I have decided to go with comfort food. Something to warm you to the tips of your toes - not that the spring weather isn't doing that already. But the spring weather can't make your tummy happy and this is like maybe a 10 minute prep time - see EASY! So without further ado, here is this week's Monday Meal:

Chicken and Rice:

9x13 pyrex or corningware baking dish
6 thawed boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1½ cups of long grain rice (NON-INSTANT) if you use the instant it will get mushy.
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can french onion soup
1 can water
salt/pepper/garlic powder to taste

Preheat oven to 390F/198.9C
Spray the baking dish with a non-stick spray
Sprinkle rice evenly along the bottom of the dish
Lay the chicken breasts down side-by-side in the dish on top of the rice
Take the cream of mushroom, french onion soup and water and blend them together
Pour the soup mixture on top of the chicken, lifting the chicken slightly so that all the rice underneath is covered with the soup mixture
Cover with foil and put in oven for 1 hour
Take foil off and bake for another 20 minutes
Take out and ENJOY!

Yield: 6 servings

See this one was EASY, yummy and makes for a good meal.

According to Blog Things, your Star Wars Horoscope, found at this site,


says: You may whine at times, but you've developed a thick hard shell (like that of a crab).
You are strong willed and persistent - until you get what you want.
You never shy away from a fight, even when things get dangerous.
Mentally sharp, you are starting to master the elements of mind manipulation.
