At some point, I am going to have to make my own cream of mushroom soup and freeze batches of it and swap the white rice out for brown. Brown rice takes longer to cook so I have yet to really sit down and redo this recipe. This is one of those recipes that both of our mothers made for us when we were children, so it has become one of those comfort meals. I hate to try to change it for fear it won’t turn out as good as my regular pan of chicken and rice.
This time we had some jasmine rice. It is a little different than plain white rice. It doesn’t seem to take as long to cook therefore getting mushy quicker. It has a different taste and of course, the smell, hence the name. Of course, with cream of mushroom soup poured on top, you really can’t tell that drastic of a chance between simple white rice and jasmine.
When I made this recipe I had no intention of posting it on YUM. Hence the quick snap of a photo. I figured if you have seen one chicken and rice dish, you have seen them all. But here I am. Showing you what YUM eats from time to time.
