It was fast to make because I used boxes of Swanson chicken broth, chicken breast strips, pre-chopped celery and onion in a container from supermarket - and 3 of those little cups of Minute Rice (2 white and one medley) - very little work other than cubing the chicken, dicing carrots and microwaving the rice and putting everything together. This is similar to the one I've made for years. I use 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can cream of chicken soup. Mix and spread on bottom of dish. sprinkle rice (1 cup or a bit more) on top. Add chicken pieces-one cut up chicken or your choice-top w/ 1 can french onion soup.
