Two Pot Meal

Chicken And Rice Casserole, Anytime Salad 019Today is one of those days I don’t feel like cooking and I’m not to keen on eating leftovers that look like leftovers.  I opened up the fridge and it struck me, why not make a casserole with all this food.  The only problem being is I still had to make a soup for the casserole.  Not really a problem.  I have the boxed soup for emergencies just like this.  So into one pot went all the ingredients, I made a slurry and thickened the soup, poured it over rice, baked it and supper was done.  Problem solved.  Oh, one other tip.  If you have any of the soup mixture left, serve it on another day as another meal, as soup.  Add noodles or even crackers and if you find it too thick, just add a little water to thin it out.  This recipe stretches to accommodate more then one meal.

A lot of people would call this a one pot meal but it is really two.  If you happen to have a leftover soup or chowder, that is in one pot.  Now to make this meal you need a pan to bake all the leftovers and rice in the oven.  So I call that a two pot meal.

Give it a try for something quick.  Pretty good.

Chicken And Rice Casserole, Anytime Salad 001Into a stockpot add 1 box of chicken broth, 2 cups shredded chicken, 1 cubed cooked potato, 1 can of creamed corn…
