Chicken and Rice Casserole

When I think of comfort food. I think of Chicken and Rice. It was one of my mom's go to meals and so I can't help but get a little nostalgic when I taste it. My kids and husband love it so I have been able to have fun with it in the next generation.
It is a very easy meal, with very little prep so it is perfect for a busy night.

You will need: 

  • 1 can cream of chicken soup or substitute 
  • 2 cans of water
  • 2 cans minute rice
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 c. frozen peas
  • 1 Tablespoon dried onion
  • 1/2 stick of butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Mix together the cream chicken soup, two cans of water, peas and 2 cans of minute rice in a casserole dish that fits in your microwave. Add the two chicken breast to the top of the mixture. Pour the melted butter on top of the chicken and season the chicken with the salt and paprika,

Microwave for 30 minutes every 15 minutes turn dish unless your microwave is a turning one. Pull the chicken out of the dish and dice up. Stir the chicken back up and serve topped with a little paprika.

What is one of your favorite comfort foods?

That is almost exactly like my mom's recipe! Except she also added those frozen cubed carrots to it also.

I'd say my favorite comfort food is macaroni and beef. My Mom never made it while I was growing up and I honestly don't know where I ate it first--but I love it!

This is a far quicker version of the chicken and rice that I grew up with, but it's pretty close otherwise. I think I know what's going on my menu for next week--thanks for the memory jog!

My favorite comfort foods are boiled buckwheat with butter and salt and homemade chicken noodle soup. Actually, I have so many comfort foods, I will run out of space.
