Mommy guilt was taking over in a major way after that gourmet dinner, so guess where I turned? Not some mommy help group, no! I turned to the Internet! Which I suppose could be a mommy help group, but for me it is the recipe finding Mecca. Jasen will tell you, it's rare that we eat the same dinner twice. RARE. Hence the looks on their faces when hot dogs showed up for dinner.
|Ooey gooey, cheesy goodness and not on a hot dog.|
I had some and it really was good and it was easy, but don't tell my family that! We may be making this one again! Maybe. Well, at least it will get into my book in the hopes that it will some day be made again. Maybe.
|My mom always|
used Uncle Ben's
2 cups cooked rice, I used wild rice, I love it.
3 cups of cooked chicken, kind of shredded, chunky
slices of swiss cheese, I used lacy swiss, which are bigger slices, so it just depends on how many to cover the casserole.
10 slices of ham, cut in pieces
2 cans cream of chicken soup, I used low fat
1/2 cup milk, I used skim
1/2 cup sour cream, I used low fat
10 ritz crackers, crushed
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp parsley
|Cooked and right off the grill.|
Just like a hot dog.
Spray a 13x19 pan with cooking spray. Cook the rice according to the package and put onto the bottom of the pan. Then, arrange the chicken on the rice. Now, top with the swiss slices until covered. Top the cheese with the ham pieces.
Mix the two cans of soup with the milk and the sour cream until smooth and pour this evenly over the ham. Spread it around so the entire thing is covered.
Now, mix the crushed crackers, paprika, garlic powder and parsley in a separate bowl and then use that mixture to cover the entire casserole.
Bake it at 350 for 30 minutes and serve.
