You know those nights where you stand gazing into the pantry or fridge wondering what to throw together for dinner? This casserole is often my answer. It’s not for a last minute meal, because it does have to bake, but the prep time is minimal.
Stop gazing into the pantry and pull out:
2-3 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
about 1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup rice
2 cans chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
I baked 3 small chicken breasts and shredded them for this dish. I really like to have chicken already to go for casseroles in the freezer. You can also substitute canned chicken if you’re very short on time.
Place the chicken in a casserole dish and sprinkle the rice over it. Stir the broth, soup and pepper together and pour over the top. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for an hour.
