Just Another Manic Monday

Can you believe it's only a matter of weeks until Christmas? It seems like this year has flown by faster than ever before and that summer sprang into winter without giving fall a second thought!

It's also been a busy year and with that in mind what's a crazy Brit to do when it comes to cooking something delicious, nutritious, yet quick and easy? The following is a simple recipe requiring very few ingredients and minimal preparation, yet it tastes fantastic and combined with a favorite vegetable even my fussy husband love its!

Creamy Chicken Bake


3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 1/4 cups of regular long grain white rice (I like to use Uncle Ben's)
1 can Campbell's condensed 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
Fresh oregano (dried if no fresh available)
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Basil
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
2 cups of water

How To Make It

Place your rice, soup, water and half of your paprika, basil, oregano and black pepper into a good sized Pyrex lidded baking dish and mix together. Once mixed together, lay the chicken breasts on top of the mixture and sprinkle the remaining paprika, basil, oregano and black pepper over the top. Cover and place in a hot oven at 375F degrees and bake for approximately 45-50 minutes.

Serve with your favorite vegetable, personally I love fresh steamed broccoli made in those fabulous steam bags you can now buy at the grocery stores!
