A Recipe for Comfort

Comfort food. When I’m sick, I want my mom’s chicken stew with dumplings. Or my mother-in-law’s chicken and rice casserole. What does it for you?

It’s pouring outside, temps in the thirties, and my family is sick. We’ve all got one form or another of the common cold. The hydrogen peroxide remedy is having to work overtime on this bug! Can’t tell if it’s working yet…seems to be on some of us and not on others! I’ll keep you informed…

I opted to make the chicken and rice casserole tonight. Mainly because it’s very easy, and easy sounded good.

Chicken and Rice Casserole

  • 1 stick butter, melted; in separate small dish melt an additional 2 TB butter
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 3 cups cooked rice (doesn’t matter what kind)
  • 3 chicken breasts, halved (I cheated today and used 6 boneless skinless chicken tenders)
  • Paprika

Combine 1 stick butter and soups in saucepan. Heat, stir until smooth. Add cooked rice and pour into a 9X13″ pan. Lay chicken breasts on top. Brush with 2 TB melted butter and sprinkle with paprika. bake at 275-300 degrees for 2 1/2 hours.

My hubby took the children to the monthly goat sale…we’re selling 3 head. By the time they get home, our supper will be ready.

What do you crave when you’re down for the count?
