Southwest Chicken Casserole


A 15 minute microwave casserole. Can substitute canned white albacore tuna for the canned white chicken. Casserole is as casserole does! Serve with mexicorn and green salad if desired.

4 servings


  • 1 (5 ounce) can chicken chunks, drained

  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles

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

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 ¼ cups water

  • 2 cups instant rice


  1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, chiles, soup, cheese, onions, salt, pepper and water and pour the mixture into a microwave safe 9x13 inch casserole dish.

  2. Add the rice. The mixture should be the consistency of soupy pancake batter.

  3. Cover the dish with a lid or plastic wrap and microwave for about 15 minutes (depending on the microwave). Serve with mexicorn and green salad if desired.
