1 7x11-inch casserole


  • 4 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite size pieces

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 cups cooked white rice

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 3 slices soft white bread, cubed


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper; place in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 5 to 6 minutes. Flip, cover again, and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 2 to 3 more minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool, about 10 minutes.

  3. Transfer cooled chicken to a 7x11-inch baking dish. Stir in rice and condensed soup until well combined. Sprinkle Cheddar over top, then bread cubes.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbly and bread cubes are toasted, about 20 minutes.

To Make Ahead:

Follow instructions up through and including adding the Cheddar, then cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake as directed, adding bread cubes just before putting it in the oven.
