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.

    Yuuuummmm….. bacon. Maybe my son will give this a try.

  2. ResseCup

    Wonder how this would fare with Turkey šŸ„“?

    • 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

    Sounds delish Lina! I didnā€™t know Campbellā€™s had cream of bacon…yum šŸ˜‹ Love the one-pot recipes!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

  5. Brittany

    How much water

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      sorry Brittany- it’s broth – fixed. Thanks!

  6. Hollywood

    Substitute riced cauliflower for the rice?

  7. lexieshaw

    Can we throw this in the instant pot?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      So I looked up similar ideas for you in the IP and seems like it would work for a cook time of 7 minutes. Maybe cut up the chicken first in smaller pieces. I havenā€™t tried this myself but wanted to share my best guess.
