When I was a little girl, my mom used to make her version of this.  It was a big hit with the whole family, but it called for cream of mushroom soup and Lipton Onion Soup mix, two ingredients that just don’t fit with a 90/10 Nutrition lifestyle.  So I set my sights on converting it to a healthy Chicken and Rice Bake, and I daresay this version is even better than the original!
