Exotic Chicken and Rice Casserole

Have you ever been eating chicken and rice and thought to yourself, "This is good, but I wish this was more exotic?" If so, you'll love this. This was inspired by many different recipes from many different places--which is why I chose this recipe name. Sprinkle this with red pepper flakes, if desired.

I've been making this casserole for almost 20 years and it's always a hit. Even my meat-eater husband likes it. Serve with a crusty French bread or soft breadsticks. Leftovers are great in an omelet the next day.

This is a favorite family recipe that I ate quite a bit of when I was pregnant. It's just one of those things that you can't get enough of!

This is my family's favorite one dish meal - mine too, since it is so easy to put together! I use skinless, boneless chicken breasts but mixed chicken pieces can be used, too. I also use the low fat, low sodium canned soups and the taste is still great!

I made this up one night when I had leftover pork roast that I had cooked in my slow cooker and frozen. Pork, broccoli and rice with a hint of curry. It's very homey and easy to make ahead of time.

Ground beef, fresh onion, green bell pepper, tomatoes and rice are simmered in a sweet-hot sauce of chile, brown sugar, cumin and Worcestershire. This savory rice dish is then baked with Cheddar and garnished with fresh cilantro.

I use to make regular cabbage rolls until I found this recipe. Now, instead, I make this and it is as good as the regular cabbage rolls and alot easier.

This is a delicious twist to broccoli, rice, and cheese casserole, and is VERY easy to make. You can also cut this in half. I use the 1 can cream of mushroom soup when I make half. You can also leave out the onion. It just gives it a little added flavor, but is still very good without it.

This is a VERY simple, quick and tasty recipe, and a special treat for all of you thigh lovers out there in 'Chickenland'! (Note: Small thighs work better for this recipe. Sometimes I parboil the chicken, then remove my two cups of water from the pot).

Mamaw's Chicken and Rice Casserole

I grew up on this recipe, my Grandmother got it from a lady from church at a pot luck a long time ago! She passed it down to my mom and it's always been a family favorite. Quick and easy for school nights, and the leftovers are just as good! You can use less butter on top of course, my Momma and Mamaw always put the full stick on top (gotta love Southern ladies and their butter!)
