(picture updated, made with chicken tenderloins)
What are we gonna have for dinner tonight? I ask myself this question everyday. I took chicken out of the freezer to thaw but had no clue of what I was going to do with it. Everything I thought of I did not have all of the ingredients for it and I did not want to go to the store. Finally I remembered my Dad had made this casserole once and I really enjoyed it. I hoped on the Campbells Kitchen website and sure enough I had all of the ingredients on hand to make it. This was easy and both my kids enjoyed it. I made a couple little changes to it and I think it made it so much better.
I enjoyed the rice just as much as the chicken. This was so good and comforting. Of course since it was just me and the kids I had leftovers. The next night I again wondered what are we gonna have for dinner. There were leftovers but not enough to feed us all and I was exhausted from work. So I put my thinking cap on and came up with quesadillas. I love it when I turn leftovers into something else.
I sliced up the chicken and added some mexican cheese to the tortillas. The rice was served on the side. It was a winner and it stretched the chicken to feed us all. My kids enjoyed this as well.
Yummy and cheesy!
