Chicken and Rice Pilaf

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt, pepper, paprika to taste
1 1/4 cups water or chicken broth
1 cup regular uncooked rice
1/2 envelope dry onion soup mix (1/4 c)
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 tbls. pimentos (1/2 of a 2 ounce jar)
Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and paprika. Mix chicken broth, uncooked rice, onion soup mix, cream soup, and pimentos together; put in an 11x7 baking dish. Place chicken breasts on top of rice mixture. Cover dish and freeze.

To prepare for serving, thaw and bake uncovered* in a preheated 375 degree oven 1-1/4 hours or until chicken and rice are tender. Makes 4 servings.

NOTES* We really liked this and it was super easy to prepare. The only change I'd make is to cover it with foil as it's cooking. Our rice got too dry. (Maybe it just needed more liquid though.) I'd definitely try this recipe again, but watch the moisture content.

It was easy to make one for dinner and another one to share later.
