Forgotten Chicken

This recipe was SO good. Everyone loved it! It's definitely something I'll be making again. It's another dish that can be customized to your liking. I didn't have the original ingredients on hand so I made the dish my own with what I had on hand in the pantry.

This dish is something that you can cook slow in the oven for about 3 hours or you can cook fast in the oven in an hour. I will put both ways in the recipe below.

Forgotten Chicken

4-6 Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breast
2 Cups Minute Rice
1 Package Lipton Onion Soup Mix (Dry Mix)
1 Can Cream of Mushroom (I use Pacific Foods Brand in a box)
1 Can Campbell's Cheddar Cheese
1 Can Water
Chili Powder
Sea Salt
Garlic Salt


Preheat oven to 350-375 (depending on your oven) for one to one and a half hours. Or you can cook it at around 250-275 for 3 hours. (The girl who I got this recipe from she said her mom always put it in the oven while they went to church for 3 hours and then ate when they got home.)

Mix the soups, 1 can of water, and rice in a bowl.

Pour the rice soup mixture into the bottom of the greased 9x13 pan.

Add the chicken in on top of the rice mixture and top the chicken with spices and the onion soup mix. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top and cover with foil.

Cook in oven for about an hour. Check to see if chicken is done and if not put in for a little bit more time.

**The original recipe called for 1 can of Cream of Celery and 1 can of Cream of Chicken. I didn't have them on hand so I changed the recipe and loved it.
**You could also add mushrooms if you use the Cream of Mushroom. You could add a veggie such as broccoli.

3 Ingredient Crockpot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

This is a VERY simple recipe with only 3 ingredients (unless you add extras). You can just throw it all in the crockpot and enjoy a really good dinner and a great smelling house.

Since this recipe is so simple you could easily make it your own by adding other things to it.

3 Ingredient Crockpot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

4-6 Boneless Chicken Breasts (They can be frozen)
1 Bottle Barbecue Sauce
1 20 oz. can Pineapple Chunks, drained


Spray the inside of your crockpot with cooking spray for an easy cleanup!

Place fresh or frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot and cover with sauce. Empty can of drained pineapple chunks on top.

Cook on High for 2-3 hours or Low for 4-6 hours. Shred chicken with two forks while still in the crockpot so the chicken will be well coated with sauce.  Serve over rice or however you'd like to eat it. You can also top with uncooked pineapple when serving.

The original recipe called for Archer Farms Hawaiian Style Barbecue Sauce but I don't buy that brand or that BBQ sauce so I used one that we do buy that doesn't have crap in it. You can use whatever BBQ sauce you like.

You could also add green peppers and onions if you'd like.

This is what I used instead of BBQ Sauce since it's what I had on hand.
