Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole

Oh this one, this one is a keeper.  I was a bit unsure about it but I have no idea why. Easy, yummy, filling, not a lot of dishes to clean.  Really you can't go wrong if you fix this for dinner.  I actually cut the recipe in half since there were only two of us and it was more than enough rice!  If you are feeding a family of 4 or 5 this should be plenty of rice for your family! The recipe is from Favorite Family Recipes.

4-6 boneless skinless chicken breast
2 c. uncooked brown rice
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
 2 cans cream of chicken soup
3 cups water
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix

Heat oven to 350.  Place rice in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.  Top with 1 cup of cheese, salt and pepper. Place chicken breast on top, then pour the cream of chicken soup over the chicken and rice. Pour water over that then sprinkle the onion soup mix over the top.  Bake uncovered for 1 hour and 45 minutes, checking after 1 hour to see if more water is needed to stay moist. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
