More-with-Less is one of my favorite cookbooks. It’s full of simple, delicious and economical recipes and this casserole is one of them. This is a perfect recipe to use chicken that you’ve already cooked and frozen. Once the chicken is cooked the dish is a snap to put together.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Mandarin Chicken Rice Bake
Servings: 6 servings
- 3/4 cup uncooked white rice
- 1 1/2 cups boiling water
- 2 cups cooked chicken
- 1 onion chopped fine
- 1/2 cup green pepper chopped
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 2 Tbs. soy sauce
- Grease a 2 quart casserole dish.
- Put the rice and the boiling water in the dish, stirring to mix.
- Add the other ingredients, stirring to mix them all in.
- Bake at 350 degrees for an hour and 15 minutes.
- You can use celery or pimento in addition to or instead of the green pepper.

That looks really good. I am adding it to my list of things to make in the next week. I have every thing except the soup which I will pickup next time I am at the store.

M-W-L is a favourite here, the only trouble is I keep wearing out my copies…
Hey, I have that cookbook. I had forgotten about it for a while. Heading to the bookshelf downstairs to get it right now. I have some reading to do. Thanks Tiffany!
Oh my. This is so good. It just screams “COMFORT FOOD!” I definitely plan to make this again and again, and highly recommend it to everyone!
I thought this was very bland and the rice didn’t cook very well. The only way I could eat this was to add Asian Chili-Garlic hot sauce to it. If I ever make this again (and it’s a BIG if), I’d probably use already cooked rice and more spices – maybe add celery salt and garlic powder?
Christine, I’m sorry you didn’t like it. Your additions sound good.
That’s okay Tiffany. You win some, you lose some. At least it provided me a meal at home which is the whole point, right? I do LOVE your stuffed shells recipe. 🙂
