When you're right smack dab in the middle of the holidays, you start doing what everyone else starts doing -- craving comfort food. If you're overloaded on turkey and dressing but still want a dish for dinner that's got the same kind of vibe, look no further than right here!
I pinned this recipe for-e-ver ago over on Pinterest (thanks to Brie at Darling Doodles!) and it hit the spot one night a few weeks ago! I would highly recommend it (especially with a load of veggies to go on the side to kind of balance out all the carbs!) and Mr. L really seemed to enjoy it too. I'll most likely be making this again soon, especially with how easy it was, and you should give it a try too!

- Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used 3 which totaled about 1.5 lbs)
- 2 cups minute rice, uncooked
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 can cream of celery soup
- 1 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix
Mix together the two cans of soup, one can's worth of water, the two cups of rice, and the onion soup mix.
Butter a 9x13 baking dish thoroughly.
Add your rice mixture to the pan, spreading evenly.
Lay your chicken breasts directly on top of the rice mixture.
Make sure to cover well with aluminum foil too.
Then pop it in your oven that's been preheated to a low temperature, around 250 degrees, and bake for approximately three hours. Alternatively, you can turn the oven up higher to around 350 degrees and bake for between an hour and an hour and a half.
After it's finished, the rice on the edges will be nice and crispy but soft in the middle. Pile it up on your plate and don't forget to enjoy! :)
Other than the classics, what kinds of comfort food do you enjoy during the holiday season?
