    **Mandy**'s Note:

    I had a look at some of the other recipes like this on Recipezaar but mine is a little different so here it is. Occasionally we will have a roast turkey as a treat and this is what I make with the leftovers. I haven't made it with chicken yet but I'm sure it is just as tasty as with the turkey. It is also kid friendly, my 17 month old daughter will eat this no problem. (Cooking time includes 10 mins approx for cooking of rice)

      I used. Italian seasoning, as others did. Instead of thyme. Also used sharp cheddar cheese in the casserole and topping Very enjoyable meal. Thank You.

      Loved this recipe :D I used 1tsp of dried thyme (as some reviews suggested the 1 1/2tsp was too much) and 1tbsp of course grain mustard. I also mixed in a tsp of parmesan into the rice, and added some mushroom, courgette and chopped fine green beans. Love it and will keep it for future use. Thank you. x

      100% FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! MY MOM AND I ARE CRAZY ABOUT THIS RECIPE!!!! We used turkey. We didn't have thyme, so we used Italian seasoning. This is FANTASTIC!!! We happened to have leftover rice and we used that. Left out the mustard, too, as our family doesn't like it much as a seasoning. Love that it only bakes for 20 minutes! We used the temp conversion on the internet and found out that 180 degrees Celsius is equal to about 350-355 degrees Farenheit. This is definately a make-again-several-times recipe!!! VERY VERY VERY DELICIOUS!!!! UPDATE: 2-1-09 Tried this again and was very dissappointed! It was very bland, but then again we didn't have any peppers so what the heck, it was probably because of that. :S
