A great use for leftover chicken or turkey. Uses no Cream of Whatever soup. A creamy wonderful one dish meal of chicken, rice 'n peas, topped off with a mixture of bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and baked until golden brown.
When I was younger, I didn’t like broccoli, but I sure loved this casserole! I requested “green rice” all the time. Maybe it was because of all the cheese :) This is a good way to get veggies, whole grains, and calcium into picky kids’ mouths! Can either be a vegetarian main dish or a side dish.
I have made this recipe using bone-on chicken pieces also, although you might have to adjust the cooking time slightly. I double the crushed tomatoes to two cans when I make this, but that is optional, my family loves this casserole!
A classic chicken and rice dish with a little twist of wild rice and apples for a hearty, warming fall or winter supper. We used a seasoned packaged wild rice blend, but plain long grain and wild rice should work fine. If you're using plain, you may want to adjust your seasonings slightly, as your salt content will be lower.
