    Marie's Note:

    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.

      On flavor, this got 5 stars. Loved it. Substituted poultry seasoning for thyme but kept everything else the same. Cooking it gets 4 - The rice on the bottom of the casserole dried out and got crunchy which received complaints... next time, I would make more sauce and mix said sauce into the rice to keep it moist.

      Great comfort food recipe, my entire family of 5 loved it! I used a multi-grain brown rice/wild rice mixture (not quick or instant rice) and poached my chicken which was seasoned well with salt, pepper & adobo in with the rice while it was cooking to save time. I put a bit of cream sauce on the bottom of the pan before adding the rice, next time I may try adding sauteed mushrooms in addition to the peas. For the topping I mixed ~1/2-2/3 c. panko bread crumbs with 1 1/2 T. parmesan and melted butter (my family likes crunchy buttery goodness a lot).

      Great comfort food. I used mushrooms in place of peas and poultry seasoning in place of thyme and it was delicious. I put some cream sauce on the bottom and then put the rice over the sauce and the rice was perfect. I love how you can use any ingredients, any seasonings, whatever leftovers you have and it still is delicious. Easy to make and reheats well.
