Baked Casserole Rice with Chicken Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes — Cook time: 50 minutes — Total time: 60 minutes — Serving: 2 people



An easy recipe for baked rice with chicken. This is a delicious rice dish that’s not too far from our one-pot recipes. All ingredients go in the same casserole which the goes in the oven. This is super easy dinner when it’s best!



3 garlic cloves

1 yellow onion

2 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 cup (2.5 dl) water

1 chicken bouillon cube

15.87 oz (450 g) chicken breast

4.76 oz (135 g) rice

0.5 cup (1 dl) cooking cream

0.71 oz (20 g) parmesan cheese



  1. Cook rice according to box instructions and put side when they’re done.
  2. Preheat your oven to 390 F (200 C).
  3. Find your trusty KUMA Chef’s Knife and finely chop onion. Then slice garlic as fine as possible.
  4. Grab a casserole and pour in a little oil and then add onion and garlic. Stir around with a fork to make sure the onion and garlic is covered in the oil.
  5. Put the casserole in the oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile start prepping the remaining things. Boil water in a pot and crumble in the bouillon cube and stir around to fully incorporate it.
  7. Add whatever spices you may want to the chicken. Salt and pepper will be just fine if you don’t want to go too extravagant. We do like a mixture of paprika, thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper and a little bit of oil.
  8. Remove the casserole from oven after 10 minutes. Then add the rice and chicken bouillon water and mix everything well with a fork or spoon.
  9. Finally, place the chicken in the casserole and then cover the entire casserole with aluminum foil. Cook in oven for 25 minutes.
  10. Remove casserole from oven after 25 minutes and take off the aluminum foil. Take up the chicken and put it aside. Then add cooking cream to the casserole and mix everything around. Consider also adding some parmesan cheese here and stir again. Then put the chicken back into the casserole.
  11. Put the casserole back into the oven for another 15 minutes.
  12. Remove the casserole from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
