Grande Chicken-Rice Ole!
If you're in the mood for Mexican flavors but don't want to leave home to get'em, here's the perfect solution: an easy casserole that looks good and smells great. My son-in-law John, cheered when I set this on the table.
1 1/2 cups (8 ounces) diced cooked chicken breast
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup chunky salsa (mild, medium or hot)*
6 tablespoons Land O Lakes fat-free sour cream*
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
2 cups hot cooked rice
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) shredded Kraft reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine chicken, chicken soup, 1/2 cup salsa, and 2 tablespoons sour cream. Add parsley flakes, rice, and Cheddar cheese. Mix well to combine. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake 20 minutes. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup salsa and remaining 4 tablespoons sour cream. Spread mixture evenly over top of casserole. Continue baking 10 minutes. Place baking dish on a wire rack and let set 2 to 3 minutes. Cut into 6 servings.
HINT: 1 1/3 cups uncooked rice usually cooks to about 2 cups.
