I don’t know about you, but I am ALWAYS on the lookout for an easy weeknight meal…and I’ve got a great one for you today!
The recipe is Everyday Thanksgiving Casserole – all you need to make it is the Knorr Creamy Chicken Rice Side, leftover turkey or chicken, stuffing mix, and some dried cranberries. The recipe was printed on the back of the package I bought, but you can also view the full recipe HERE.
I didn’t have any leftover chicken, so I seasoned two chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning, then popped it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350, let it cool a bit and then cut it up into bite sized pieces. A rotisserie chicken would also be great for this recipe. Prepare the rice side according to package directions, but add an extra 1/4 cup of water. In the last 5 minutes of cooking, add the chicken and dried cranberries. Once it’s finished, transfer to a casserole dish.
Mix 1.5 cups of seasoned stuffing mix with 1/2 c. warm water, then spoon it on top of the rice mixture.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350. That’s it!! If you already had the leftover chicken or turkey, dinner is on the table in LESS than 30 minutes. It’s so easy!
AND it’s delicious. Both my husband and my 19 month old ate it up.
