I came up with this recipe because I wanted something like a chicken and rice casserole, but I wanted to use up a bunch of cooked leftover rice I had in the fridge. I didn't want to put cooked rice inside the casserole as it would've gone mushy, so I baked the base of it, then added my leftover rice on top, along with some cheese, and finished it off to have a lovely crisp top layer. It was excellent!

You can use any vegetables you have on hand for this. I used a 9 x 9 glass baking dish inside of my toaster oven.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 large chicken breasts, bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 5 mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 cup kale, chopped
  • 2 tsp taco seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • 10 oz cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 tsp taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a baking dish and add chicken pieces. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper.

  3. Add all of your veggies and 2 teaspoons of taco seasoning. Mix everything together.
  4. Whisk together the mushroom soup, yogurt, garlic powder and about 1/2 a teaspoon of salt.
  5. Pour this mixture over the chicken and veggies.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Pull out of oven and increase heat to 400 F.

  8. Spread cooked rice all over the top, then sprinkle with a teaspoon of taco seasoning.
  9. Cover with shredded cheese, then put back in the oven to finish baking for about 15 minutes, until top is browned and crisp.
  10. The cooked veggies do create an abundance of liquid, which I prefer tip out once I make the first cut. This is piping hot! Let it cool a bit before enjoying.

The Lemon Chicken with Herb Rice by Campbell's Supper Bakes boxed mix is delicious. Any idea how to make it from scratch? I'd like to make it less salty and healthier, if possible.

Here's an excellent Lemon Chicken recipe I've made for a couple of decades ... It sounds like a lot of work but it really isn't and the end results are yummy, very healthy and well worth the effort :-) I choose to cook it in a wok but a large skillet will do just fine ... You can freeze leftovers if you wish to :-) Actually, I think I'll enter this one in the recipe contest ;-)

Lemon Chicken

4 whole chicken breasts, boned skinned and cut in to bite size pieces (of course, you can buy already skinned and boned breasts)
4 tbls peanut oil
2 tsp corn starch plus 1 tbls mixed with one tbls water
3 tsp grated lemon rind
2/3 cup chicken stock
1 lb fresh snow peas
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Rice of your choosing

Toss chicken bites with 2 tbls oil and 2 tsp cornstarch

Heat remaining 2 tbls peanut oil in wok or skillet

Stir fry chicken about 2 minutes

Sprinkle with lemon rind and then add chicken stock and snow peas

Stir fry 1 minute

Combine lemon juice with cornstarch and water paste, add to wok and stir fry until sauce has thickened

Serve over rice

Bon Appetite ;-)

OOH! That sounds yummy!

Possibly you have a recipe for chicken cooked on a bed of flavored rice, everything covered with a can of sauce and a crumb topping? This is basically a description of the Campbell's Chicken meal. Normally I detest boxed meals, but this one is a winner.
