If you have never heard about this recipe then you might be wondering about it. The forgotten chicken recipe got its name because you can leave it in the oven and it will still taste the name. The main idea behind this recipe is to throw some ingredients with chicken in the oven for a particular time and you have your dish ready. Of course, we are not going to burn it but you can set a timer and do your chores while this dish will prepare on its own. It is a foolproof recipe and you are surely going to fall in love with it.
I have been in love with easy recipes because let’s face it, we do not have the time to become a MasterChef every day. These simple recipes are a lifesaver that gives you time and compliments for preparing the perfect meal for your family. I just add some rice, chicken, cream of chicken, and mushroom soup, and a nice dinner is ready. Nothing else can beat this recipe especially when you serve it hot and fresh from the oven.
You can customize it in your ways like adding vegetables, spices, and cheese. I prefer this recipe that I am sharing and would love you guys to try it the same. After that, you can customize your very own recipe with your favorite ingredients.
Forgotten chicken recipe tips:
You can use any type of rice for this recipe. Some of the rice types may need more water so make sure to properly add the required amount for proper cooking.
All of the chicken breasts should be of the same size. Even the thickness should not be less and more to ensure each of them is cooked.
Always shake the onion soup mix and the cans before using.
If you think that your rice is done but there is still water then remove the foil so the water can dry quickly.
You can keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days and it will be perfectly fresh to eat. Freezing the cooked meal is not recommended because the chicken will lose its flavor.
What sides can you make with forgotten chicken?
You can make some creamy mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, roasted or air fry broccoli, and Brussel sprouts. Go with some salad and cheesy appetizers if you want to create a nice ambiance for your meal. Cheesy garlic bread and some crispy wedges with seasoning can also be an amazing side for your perfect dinner.
