"Layers of rice, chicken breast, a creamy soup and salsa mixture and two kinds of cheese add up to a simply yummy salsa casserole! This recipe is a family favorite because it's delicious and easily made with ingredients found in the pantry."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Place rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place chicken breast halves into a large saucepan, and fill the pan with water. Bring to a boil, and cook for 20 minutes, or until done. Remove chicken from water. When cool enough to handle, cut meat into bite-size pieces.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses. In a separate bowl, mix together cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, onion, and salsa. Layer 1/2 of the rice, 1/2 of the chicken, 1/2 of the soup and salsa mixture, and 1/2 of the cheese mixture in prepared dish. Repeat layers, ending with cheese.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes, or until bubbly.

Yummy. It has the potential for 5 stars. Definitely decrease the rice. I did decrease the rice and thought I could reduce it even more. I simmered some onions and garlic before adding the soup a...

This tasted really good. It is very similar to my mom's ckn & rice cass. except she doesn't use salsa. I made a couple of changes in order for this to work for me. First, I like to cook my ch...

This was an easy but very satisfying meal. I too made the rice separate and combined and put into the oven. That was the only real change except cooking the onions with the chicken. If you don't...
