No Peek Chicken & Rice


This was as fabulous tasting as it looks! What a simple and easy No Peek Chicken & Rice recipe! It can be made entirely in one 13” x 9” pan. My Mom sent me this recipe because she loved it so much but I did make a few minor changes. I don’t know where it originated from, to give them credit, but I know it’s been around for a while. I used my homemade onion soup mix in mine but you can use a Lipton Onion Soup dry mix pouch or your favorite. It makes a lot so it will feed a family of 4 – 6 or in our case…..leftovers!




Plus one recipe of my Homemade Onion Dry Soup Mix below

or you can use one pouch dry onion soup mix from the store.




Pour the melted butter, rice, water and both cans of

soups into an oven safe 13” x 9” baking dish.



Mix until combined.



Place the cut up chicken pieces on top and

sprinkle with the dry onion soup mix.



Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake in a

preheated 350 degree oven without removing

the foil for 1 hour and 45 minutes.



Remove the foil and use a thermometer to

see if the chicken is done (at least 165 degrees).

If not continue cooking, covered, until it is.



Place the chicken and rice on serving plates and dig in!

  1. I have made a very similar dish as this before, but never put onion soup on top. That is an interesting twist. I might have to try that. Thanks for sharing.

  2. There are certain recipes that just take you back to your childhood. This dish reminded me of my own family dinners, noisy dinner talk, and my wonderful siblings fighting over the last spoonful. This dish looks so creamy and wonderful! Thank you!

  3. Liptons products everyplace here the Latvians even drink our English tea. Liptons one of the oldest colonial India and London tea importers. So set to make this lovely dish for tonight, dear lady thank you. Makes a dish for a jolly old bean to enjoy

  4. What an awesome recipe you did here Dianne! I love how you outline the recipes with photos so simply too. Bravo on your homemade onion soup mix.
