"Chicken casserole with a rich cheese sauce." — KMSMOKEY
Watch video tips and tricks
1 (4 pound)
shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (4.5 ounce) can
cooked white rice
salt and pepper to taste
We added some peppers, extra fresh mushrooms, diced up 1\2 an onion and used leftover chicken instead of a whole one. The flavour was good, add some corn or brocolli and use white and wild rice instead. Also we were unsure of whether it should be 1 cup rice before or after cooking. Definately 1 cup (or a little more) before cooking. This recipe has a ton of potential. We are looking forward to making it again.
I thought this recipe was okay. However, it tastes alot like Easy Cheesy Skillet Chicken.
Both my husband and I enjoyed this casserole. It's a keeper. I used fresh mushrooms and it was great, think I might try adding broccoli to make a complete meal.
This recipe was great. My family really enjoyed it. Next time I would cook boneless chicken breast instead of whole chicken. Would save a bit of time.
This was great! We used fresh mushrooms and did 1 cup cheddar 1 cup monterey jack. Also added some frozen broccoli. This is the chicken and rice recipe we will be using from now on. Thanks so much for sharing! I've been searching for a good chicken rice recipe...
Gosh – where do I start? This recipe was FANTASTIC – but also was VERY economical – with a couple of ideas! I used a package of raw chicken tenders (about 10 to a package) instead of a whole chicken. I boiled those with celery, onion, garlic, and a lot of different spices in a big pot of water. To help with the budget – I used only 5 of the chicken tenders once cooked and used 2 cups of cooked rice. I also added some of the strained veggies from my stock to add texture and color. I used only half of the cheese sauce and topped with crushed buttery crackers. Came out great – good comfort food – good food for a snowy day! The economical part – I used the rest of the stock, veggies, tenders, in addition to a small bag of frozen stew veggies, and a little “soup” pasta to make a fabulous chicken soup! I added a tiny bit more milk to the leftover cheese sauce (and spices) to add to a little bit of leftover pasta and veggies that were in the fridge to make a nice lunch! I could have also made creamed peas with the rest of the cheese sauce too – but had to use the other leftovers first! So – I highly recommend this recipe – it can be stretched and if you keep the stock and veggies – you can get two plus meals out of one!!!!!!!! Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!
my hubby claims he doesnt like rice, but he sure gobbled this one up! Also make a great stock for next days lunch- soup, i just added noodles! 2fer1 yeah!
Really enjoyed this recipe. Was a great way to use leftover turkey and a wild rice/quinoa blend I had. Made as directed, but didn't have mushrooms so omitted and replaced with broccoli.
When making the cheese sauce, i just added some granulated garlic and onion as well as some sage plus salt and pepper. Very tasty! Everyone really enjoyed.
