Menu Plan Monday

I really, really liked the new recipes that we tried last week.  My favorite was the Buffalo Chicken.  I don't think Tyler liked it as much as I did but he still said it was good!   I LOVED using my crockpot so much....but this week I'm giving it a rest :)  This week none of my recipes are from pinterest for a change!  Just the good ole' recipe box in my kitchen.  

Chicken and Rice Casserole
my mom's recipe
1 lb. chicken breasts
4tb melted butter
1 c. rice (I do a little more)
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of celery
1 can milk
mix all ingredients together and pour over chicken breasts in a 9x13 pan.  Sprinkle 1/2 pkg. Lipton onion soup on top.
Bake at 325 for 1 hour 45 minutes covered.
Check it often, may only need 1 hour 30 minutes cooking time depending on your oven.
