Pre-heat oven to 400°. Set out a 10x13 pan to put all your ingredients in. Cut up chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Add all your chicken to the 10x13 pan. To the pan add: 2 cups of water, 2 cups of basmati rice, 2 cans of cream of mushroom, & 1 can of cream of chicken. Evenly stir.
Add a decent amount of paprika & black pepper- typically about 4 pinches of each. Stir evenly.
Once all the ingredients are mixed, take 4 tbsp of butter & cut them up into 4-1 tbsp slices. Place on top of pan. Place into oven for cooking time.
Cook chicken & rice for 1 hour and 5 min. Then take out of oven to add a generous layer of cheese to the top. Place back into oven for 10 more minutes.
