  • a great dish for helping a cold or upset tummy.
  • i use a standard 8 piece pack of chicken thighs with skin on. use one of the soup cans to measure the rice and milk.
  • you can substitute chicken breasts plus fat free soup and milk for an even lower fat recipe.
  • if you don't like the peppers they can be omitted. i like them because they add a little extra taste to the dish.
  • while cooking, put the chicken in skin side up then cover for the first 30 minutes with foil, then remove the foil for the last 30 minutes. this will give the skin a nice brown crunch.
  • 2 pounds chicken thighs
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 2 jars of mushrooms, drained
  • 2 soup cans of long grain rice
  • 1/4 cup fire roasted bell pepper, red, chopped
  • 2 soup cans of 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • a 9x13 nonstick baking pan works best for this recipe.
