NOODLES INSTEAD OF RICE
IT WAS PRETTY GOOD EXCEPT FOR THE RICE NEVER COOKED I WILL USE NOODLES NEXT TIME INSTEAD OF RICE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE SAID IN THERE REVIEW!
All Week Quickie
I love how easy and flavorful this recipe is (especially for a single guy with no time). I have played around with it by adding black beans and mushrooms. I make the casserole on a Sunday night and it is a good, healthy, quick dinner all week long.
ok but ...
I made this using leftover chicken. I also added parmesan cheese, chopped tomatoes and some peppers. The rice never did cook, even after I cooked it a second time. There was not enough rice to soak up all that water, I would cut the water down to about half or even leave it out all together. The next time I will leave out the rice and do noodles instead.
