No Peek Chicken


1 box Uncle Ben's Long Grain Wild Rice (original recipe)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can water 
(You can add another can of water for moister rice.)
Chicken breasts or tenders

How to make it :

In a greased 9 x 13 pan, mix the box of rice, cans of celery and mushroom soup and 
one can of water.  I always add the extra can of water because I like moist rice.
Arrange the raw chicken on top of the rice mixture....
Cover and seal with foil......
Bake at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours and "Don't Peek!"
Your house will smell amazing!

  1. Looks delicious!! My mom used to make something similar to this with pan-fried porkchops, white rice, peas and a couple cans of cream of mushroom soup.. We loved it as kids. A lot of times, she would make each person's in their own foil packet.. We each had our own, and she had no mess!

    1. I want to try this, but with white rice first. Do you do anything different from what is described above?

  3. That sounds like it would be too long to cook - 2 1/2 hrs? Will make this soon and just monitor, as my oven would most likely over cook this at that length of time.

    1. I make this with a little variation, I top it with Lipton's Dried Onion Soup sprinkled on top. I bake at 325 for 3 hours. It is very tender and tasty. Tamara Hessler

    2. I have not made this, but ATTENTION COOKS: If you line pan with foil so you are totally wrapping food with foil, it will probably need the full 2 1/2 hours. Reminds me of hubby's baked steak as far as cooking method. Lower heat 25 degrees for a glass pan. If pan is too big, less time is necessary. Remove foil last 30 minutes for browning. Check every 10 minutes. I agree box size would be nice to know. With so much salt and flavoring added I don't know how it could be boring.I would try my favorite Jasmine Rice, 2 cans chicken broth not water. Boneless Chicken, smaller cuts will cook quicker. Hope all this helps.

    1. Did you use the seasoning pack from the rice along with the Italian Dressing mix?

    2. So did you add the seasoning packet from the rice and use the dry Italian Dressing mix both?

    2. You really did cook it that full time?

    3. I thought 2 1/2 hours was too long also and stopped cooking at 1 3/4 hours. Even then it was overcooked. I was very disappointed as with the 2 cans of soup and the packet in the rice, it was very salty and did not taste good. I think it would be better using Uncle Ben's regular white rice or eliminate the seasoning package.

  6. Do I put the seasoning packet from box of rice in also?

  8. Can Rice a Roni be used instead? If so, what about the seasoning packet? I noticed someone asked a few weeks ago about the seasoning pack but none of the comments have been replied to. I'm thinking if trying this tonight.

  9. I made this and the flavor was good, but it was pale, not browned as in the photo? How do I get that nice golden brown color?

  10. Since it specifies original recipe for the rice mix I would assume the seasoning packet is meant to be included.

  12. there are several of these no peek variations going around the net..the last one I made was good but too much sodium which translated to an overly salty ( for my taste) dish. I followed this recipe to a T with the exception of the rice. Instead of uncle ben's I used a short grain baldo rice so the result was more risotto like and it was yummy! Since the baldo was not seasoned, I added 21 season salute from trader joes and fresh chopped parsley to the soup and rice mixture. Then once I poured the rice mixture in the dish I placed random pats of butter around, added the chicken sprinkled the chicken with paprika and jalapeno powder for a kick.

  13. I made it and family liked it, I didn't get any as I wasn't feeling good that night. Making it again tonight only using pork chops as I'm out of chicken breast.

  14. 2 1/2 hours -- way too long --- chicken was dry.
    This picture had to be altered........mine came out NOT browned on top.......looked very unappetizing.
    Didn't taste that good, either. I threw the recipe away. Will not make again. I should have known better.

  17. I just made this and stopped the cooking at 1 1/2 hours because common sense was telling me that 2 1/2 hours at 350 degrees was way too long. It still was overcooked. I have a similar recipe using pork chops, and the recipe calls for cooking at 375 for 1 hour.

  18. So disappointed. Mine doesn't look ANYTHING like the picture! How did you brown the top??

    ReplyDelete
  19. We love this. I use brown rice and sprinkle paprika on top that way chicken looks browned and adds a little more flavor.

  21. I add chopped onion and 1/4 white wine or sherry to the rice mixture. Also found my cook time to be less. Oh and broil without a foil a few minutes to brown top.

    1. Yes you can. I make mine in the slow cooker, and use Golden Mushroom soup in place of the cream of mushrooom. Very good!

  24. I made this today but 2 1/2 hours seems like too long. I baked it just over 2 hours, and it seemed overdone. The rice was overdone, and it was just starting to stick to the bottom of the pan. thirty more minutes it would have burned. Maybe my oven is off.
