The Kid is a big fan of casseroles…my mom makes his favorite one and I plan to get that recipe while we’re there this weekend. I’ll share it next week!
After perusing Pinterest for easy casserole ideas, I came across this one…
Looks simple and delicious! Click HERE for the original recipe… I made it a little differently.
Here’s my version…
Kraft Southwest Three Cheese Fresh Take breadcrumb mix
2 cups instant brown rice
2 large cans chicken chunks, drained well
1/2 can whole kernel sweet corn
1 1/2 cups shredded Triple Cheddar
Tortilla strips salad toppers
9×9 casserole dish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook instant brown rice according to package directions and set aside.
Use breadcrumb mix according to package directions to coat drained chicken chunks.
Place chicken on a greased baking pan and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
While chicken is baking, spread the cooked brown rice on a greased 9×9 inch baking dish.
Layer the 1/2 can whole kernel sweet corn over the rice.
Top casserole with the baked coated chicken chunks.
Sprinkle shredded cheddar over the top.
Lower oven temperature to 325 and bake for 25 more minutes.
Drizzle with ranch dressing and tortilla strips.
Serve and enjoy!
I really liked this dish. It was easy to make and the ingredients were pretty inexpensive. Try it and let me know if your family enjoyed it!
Until next time…
