Directions

  1. Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil; cover, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and slice.
  2. In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in onions and rice; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are limp. Pour in 2 cups chicken broth, cover and cook until rice is done, about 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
  4. In another saucepan, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Whisk in flour. Slowly stir in cream and remaining 2 tablespoons chicken broth; stir constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Spread half of the cooked rice in bottom of the prepared pan. Top with half of the egg slices, half of the diced green chilies and half of each of the cheeses. Spoon half of the chicken gravy the eggs. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  6. Bake uncovered in preheated oven until bubbly and golden. Sprinkle with paprika if desired.

Great recipe!! Prepared it for 18 people at family brunch. Most asked for recipe. I prepared it the night before and that worked well. I'd make this one again. Pat

This was OK... too salty (and I only used a pinch of salt. This is definitely not a 2-helping dish. If I do make this again, I may add diced green chiles to the egg mixture and use a mexi-melt cheese combination (even mild cheddar was a bit "much" in this recipe); a more mild, creamy cheese might work better.

I liked this one a lot. I used brown rice, cooking it about 40 minutes. Also, the chilis are a must, I think, for this recipe. Without them it might be a bit bland. It only took about 30 minutes in the oven, not an hour, as the "cook time" says.

Delicious! Prep some of the steps ahead of time. Serve it with spicy chorizo or linguica for a little more kick. Everyone who tries this asks for the recipe. A winner!

GREAT recipe!! I added a rib and a half of celery and three cloves of garlic to the onions and rice and then added fresh parsley and oregano as well. I doubled the sauce recipe and instead of chicken broth, I used white wine for a nice little extra flavor. Instead of salt and pepper in it, I used Adobo seasoning. In the layering I added cooked breakfast sausage. I used Monterey Jack and Swiss cheese and the whole casserole (I put it in a square pan instead) came out FABULOUS!

Recipe turned out very dry and bland, and the rice was too dominant in the taste. Tried a second helping and put hot sauce on and it still wasn't good. Maybe doubling the gravy, and spicing it up would help. As is will never make again. The eggs also seemed to get "rubbery"? Not very good at all. Sorry, everyone else seemed to enjoy it.

I added 1 lb browned sage sausage in the layers and mixed my green chilis with the rice and it is even better than the original.
