Dutch Oven Baked Chicken and Rice

8 servings

4 chicken breasts cut in half
2 cups uncooked rice (white, brown or wild)
1 package Lipton Onion soup mix
2 cans chicken broth or 4 cups water and bouillon
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp pepper
1 can water

Line a 4 quart dutch oven with foil or liner.  Pour rice into dutch oven.  In a separate bowl, combine chicken broth, cream of mushroom soup and 1 can water.  Pour mixture over the rice and mix well.
Place chicken on top of rice and sauce mixture.  Sprinkle soup mix, paprika and pepper over chicken. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes or until chicken and rice are done.
