    Default Chicken and Rice Casserole

    Chicken and Rice Casserole


    Recipe Description
    delicious chicken and rice in a creamy sauce
    Preparation Steps:
    dice onion, celery and carrot
    mince garlic
    cut green beans into 1 inch pieces
    cube chicken
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    1 1/2 hrs
    Ingredients:
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    1 carrot, chopped
    4 garlic cloves, chopped fine
    1 teaspoon seasoning salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon mild chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    3 1/2 cups chicken stock
    3 1/2 cups whole milk
    1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
    2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
    2 2/3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
    1 cup green beans
    2/3 cup breadcrumbs
    2/3 cup cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese, shredded
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    Serves:
    6-8
    Directions:
    Melt butter in a large dutch oven over medium heat and cook onions, celery and carrots until soft but not brown. Add garlic, seasoned salt, pepper and chile powders and cook until very fragrant. Add flour and mix well. Cook until starting to color.
    Whisk milk and stock into vegetable flour mixture. Turn heat to medium high and continue to whisk as mixture comes to a simmer. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add rice to sauce and lower heat to medium low. Cook until the rice absorbs most of the liquid and is tender, stirring occasionally. Will take about 20 minutes.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add raw chicken to the rice and sauce mixture. Cut green beans into 1 inch lengths and stir into the mixture as well. Cook approximately 4 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside. Stir in cheese.
    Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 inch casserole, or two 8x8 inch casseroles.
    Combine bread crumbs, cheese and garlic powder and sprinkle evenly over top of the casserole. Place in hot oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is browned and casserole is bubbling.
    You really should cool for 10 minutes before cutting. You could garnish with parsley and lemon wedges. Or not .

    I only put one cup of grated cheddar cheese on top and sprinkled bread crumbs over it instead mixing any in plus putting some on top. I also thought it needed a bit more seasoning so I added 1/2 teaspoon of dried tarragon.

    I'll be trying this soon and make it in 2 8x8 pans like you suggested so I can have one for dinner and one for the freezer since it looks like it'll freeze well. Thanks!
