Found this recipe at Deep South Dish and modified it to suit our tastes. We LOVE it and so does everyone that tries it. Recipe can be doubled for a larger amount. Use a large cake pan if doubling recipe.

How to Make Bacony Chicken & Rice Bake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Dust chicken pieces in seasoned flour and brown till golden, set aside for now.
  • 2In a separate bowl add the cream of chicken soup, broth, garlic salt, Bell's Seasoning, parsley and whisk together well. Mix all of the rice with the soup mix. Mixing the rice with the soup helps to ensure that the rice is cooked through and flavored well.
  • 3Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Spray an 9 x 9 cake dish with non stick spray. Layer sauteed bacon pieces (and celery if using) on the bottom of the baking dish.
    Carefully pour soup/rice mix over the bacon. Place chicken on top of rice/soup mixture.
  • 4Cover tightly with heavy duty foil, or add one layer of regular aluminum foil, seal tight and repeat with a second layer. Bake in the middle or upper part of your oven, at 300 degrees F for 2 hours - without peeking for the full amount of time to ensure rice is cooked! Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
