Tips and Variations

  • Add Vegetables: For a complete meal, add a layer of your favorite vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, or green beans underneath the chicken.

  • Use Different Soups: Swap out the cream of mushroom soup for cream of celery or cream of broccoli for a different flavor profile.
  • Cheesy Goodness: Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of the dish in the last 10 minutes of baking for a cheesy crust.

Storing Leftovers

If you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. This dish also freezes well; just make sure to cool it completely before transferring to a freezer-safe container. Reheat in the oven at 350°F (175°C) until warmed through, or microwave individual portions.

Food and Drink Pairings

Amazing Forgotten Chicken pairs beautifully with a simple green salad and a light vinaigrette. For a heartier meal, serve with garlic bread or roasted potatoes. As for drinks, a chilled glass of Chardonnay or a crisp apple cider would complement the flavors perfectly.


Can I use brown rice instead of white rice?

Yes, you can use brown rice, but you may need to adjust the cooking time and add a bit more liquid to ensure the rice cooks through properly.

What can I substitute for the dry onion soup mix?

If you don’t have dry onion soup mix, you can use a mixture of dried minced onions, beef bouillon granules, onion powder, and a bit of garlic powder.

Can I make this recipe in a slow cooker?

Absolutely! Layer the ingredients in your slow cooker as directed and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
