Written by COA Nutrition Team On June 7, 2024

This is a no-peek chicken and rice casserole. The uncooked rice, chicken, and cheddar bacon ranch seasonings all get cooked together in a baking dish.


  • 5 oz. can condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 oz. packet dry ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 cup long grain white rice uncooked
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup cooked bacon bits or crumbled bacon pieces
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place the chicken in the baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, add the soup and ranch seasoning. Whisk until well combined. Add the rice and water to the bowl. Whisk until the soup is dissolved in the water.
  4. Pour the rice mixture evenly in the dish over the chicken breasts.
  5. Sprinkle the bacon bits evenly over the chicken and rice. Top with the shredded cheddar cheese.
  6. Cover the dish with aluminum foil. Make sure the foil is sealed around the edges to trap in the steam and cook the rice.
  7. Cook for an hour and 15 minutes.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
