Menu Plan Monday
This week I've got a couple of Christmas parties, so I'm only planning for 3 nights. I'm having girlfriends over on Wednesday, my office party on Friday and family over (potluck) on Saturday.
Monday: Ziti w/black olive and sun riped tomato sauce and salad
(its one of those 90 second sauces that I got almost free at Wal-mart)
Tuesday: Cheesy Chicken and Rice (see below)
Thursday: Salsa Chicken
Friday: Christmas party
Since I don't get home in time to wait on a casserole to bake, I'm going to try this in the crockpot. My trusted cooking advisor says to just put the chicken on bottom and the rice on top and all should be well.
Cheesy Chicken & Rice Casserole
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup 1 1/3 cups water
1/2 tsp. onion powder 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables 4 skinless, chicken breasts halves
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese 3/4 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
Stir the soup, water, rice, onion powder, black pepper and vegetables in an 11 x 8-inch (2-quart) shallow baking dish. Top with the chicken. Season the chicken as desired. Cover. Bake at 375°F. for 50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Top with cheese. Let casserole stand for 10 minutes. Stir rice before serving.
