Bacon just makes everything better!

I picked up the new cream of bacon soup for this recipe, and it tasted YUM! You can use cream of chicken if desired instead. In fact, this whole idea can be altered to your family’s tastes, including the type of veggie and how you season the chicken. Also note, I used chicken tenders, but you can use breasts and maybe slice them into smaller pieces so they will cook evenly.

A 2.5-quart casserole dish worked great for this recipe. Check out my cute, vintage-inspired Corningware Cornflower set!

Hip Tip: Use a parboiled long-grain rice like Uncle Ben’s, just so there won’t be any issues with rice not cooking all the way. My rice was a nice texture. Not too soft, not too hard.

    Wonder how this would fare with Turkey 🥓?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum! I like that idea! Maybe just cook the rice, lessen broth and stick it all in the casserole dish.

  3. Mel
