Tonight I made broccoli and breadsticks as well to go with it. Here is the recipe, it's from Seat Of the Pants Suppers.....my easy cookbook. The one you use when your mother taught you how to make pork chops which resemble beef jerky.
Ingredients (Hi, I love my new phone.)
Take 3 cups cooked chicken (I usually have some in the freezer, I make extra whenever I'm making a chicken dinner), mix with 3 cups rice and a jar of gravy (we use a fat free chicken gravy). Mix together and put in a pie plate.
Add melted butter to some italian bread crumbs, cover dish with the bread crumbs like a crust. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
I did not have any precooked chicken on hand so I had to put some in a skillet.
Mix the rice, gravy and chicken all together. We usually eat brown rice but Logan's low fiber this week for the Indy Mini Marathon this weekend. It looks sort of unappealing. This is definite comfort-like food.
Take the bread crumbs (mixed with a couple tablespoons of butter) and put them all over the top. Bake at 350 for around 20 minutes and.....hello. You are khaki colored and not something I would serve to guests but still, you tantalize me.
Did They Eat It?
Logan: likes this dish, especially since it had white rice and he'd just run for 30 minutes before it was served. Have I mentioned how much I hate running? I hate running.
Max: "I remember this! I love this!"
Madison: "Sometimes I say I don't like the sauce on things....so I lick all the sauce off the part I like and then eat it and I can't understand why my mother impales herself on a butter knife when I say I don't like the sauce."
Melissa: I do like this, it's comfort food. My friend Chrissy makes something called Spam-A-Rama (yes.....made with Spam! And Velveeta!) and I like that too. There, I said it. Are you happy now?
