Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole
This Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole cooks up beautifully in a Dutch oven. If you do not have Dutch oven, try using a regular pot with a lid that you can put in the oven, and check it often to be sure that the bottom does not burn while the casserole cooks. This is a terrific recipe that starts right from scratch, but takes a few short cuts to make the job easier including using chicken that is already cooked. The website blogger and recipe developer recommends rotisserie chicken for this recipe, and that is a great idea to help to make things move along more quickly.
This recipe will take a bit of time to first mix up the milk sauce, but the result is well worth the effort. This recipe creates a lovely milk based sauce to hold the chicken, adds some great spicing, and finishes with vegetables including carrots and celery. These vegetables are great and complement the casserole well. In addition, the recipe calls for brown rice. This is a great choice for this dinner. Brown rice has a nutty and robust flavor that works really well with chicken. Chipotle or smoked paprika is also one of the seasonings, so this casserole will have a lovely smoky smell and taste that your family will adore.
Make this dish when you have some time to make the sauce for the chicken. That will take a bit of time, but you save a few minutes by using already cooked chicken. This casserole is a lovely blend of vegetables and served over brown rice, a highly nutritious choice for dinner. The photos on the website will help you through the recipe, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Try it soon.
