Chicken and Rice Casserole

Posted 2017-12-11 by finyfollow

Delicious, creamy and an unusual taste, I added some Jalapenos to the dish after it was cooked.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
4 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
1 tsp dried thyme
1 cup chicken soup
1 cup milk
2 cups cooked chicken, diced
1½ cups cooked rice
¾ cup peas
1 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated

Method
  • If you do not have cooked chicken buy either breasts, and cook till JUST tender or thighs and cook a bit longer, and then shred the meat. I had some chicken meat left over from [link http://recipeyum.com.au/traditional-jewish-chicken-soup/ this recipe].

  • Melt 3 tbsp of the butter or ghee over a medium heat, and put in the flour and thyme - cook for a minute.

  • Gradually stir in the soup and the milk, stirring until it is thick and smooth.


  • Spray a shallow baking dish.

  • Preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan forced.

  • Stir in the cooked chicken and add some salt and pepper to taste - keep aside.

  • Spread the rice in the oiled baking dish, and put the peas over this.


  • Pour in the creamed chicken mixture over the peas.

  • Dot with the remaining tbsp of butter.


  • Add the bread crumbs and cheese after mixing it together first.

  • Bake until hot and bubbly - about 25 minutes.

  • I heated it up the next day with my potatoes au gratin.
