When I saw this chicken & wild rice bake on Pip and Ebby, I pinned it and made a modified version the very next day. I’ve made myriad chicken/rice/onion soup recipes over the years, but this one was a twist on what I’d made in the past, and it did not disappoint.

This was so easy to make, and it was loaded with flavor.  I am a salty/savory kinda gal, so this dish was right up my alley. The dry onion soup mix, rice seasoning (if you use Uncle Ben’s long grain & wild), and broth add great flavor but lots of salt. If you watch your sodium intake, you might want to tweak this just a smidge.

This is an “oven does all the work” dish that takes between 1/1/2 – 2 hours’ baking time.  I used frozen breast tenderloins, and my dish was done in 1 1/2 hours. If using bigger pieces of chicken, cook time may be longer.

This dish makes a perfect meal paired with a simple salad and a bread of some sort. I am not sure why, but I like to enjoy this dish with a slice of wheat bread covered in butter spread. Yum!!!!

Leftovers are delicious. I ate this meal two days in a row:-)

Hope you try this. If so, please let me hear your thoughts! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
