You can use either regular rice or instant rice. Cook the rice according to the package directions for how many servings you'll need. While the rice is cooking, brown chicken breasts in a little oil. I always like to add a little salsa too. When the rice is done, pour salsa in and stir to mix well. This is good when you have leftover salsa in the fridge. Half a large jar is enough for 4 servings-worth of rice (about 1 cup uncooked).

Place rice in buttered casserole dish. Mix everything else, except chicken. Pour half of mixture over rice, then place a layer of chicken on top and cover with the rest of the mixture of soup and salad dressing. You may use chicken broth instead of water and recipe may be doubled.
Bake at 375 degrees F for approximately 35 minutes. Make sure that the dish is completely heated through.
