quick and easy one pan chicken and rice casserole


I love when a recipe is easy.  But, who doesn’t?

I especially love when I recipe uses only one pan…  Hooray for less dirty dishes!

This recipe is both of those things.

Oh, and it’s gluten free too.  If you want it to be.

I am all about a good casserole.  There is something so hearty and comforting about a delicious, creamy casserole for dinner.  This recipe I found in my Pawpaw’s cook book he made me and it’s so easy that anyone, yes anyone, could make it.

In order to make this recipe gluten free, I skipped the Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup and opted for the Pacific Foods Organic Cream of Mushroom soup as it is gluten free.  I also used chicken breast tenders as opposed to full or half chicken breasts as the tenders cook faster.  Chicken tenders also are easier for me to keep moist (hate that word!) whereas chicken breasts can dry out very easily.

    Hi! What do you mean by one can of milk? Do you mean the empty soup can refilled with milk? Thanks! Looks so yummy.

    It was so yummy! I’m with you one pan dishes are my favorites especially because you can have it made up early and just pop it in the oven after a days work.
