I’ve been wanting to make something like this for awhile. Chicken, rice, Mexican, creamy sauce, etc.
After reading many recipes the last week or so, here’s my composite…
In a 4qt casserole, I laid out what was probably about a pound of whole chicken breasts and deeply perforated them with a couple forks.
I then poured over them the following mixture…
about a cup of water
over a cup of Bueno hot green chiles, which I quickly drained but wanted some juice in, just not too much
a can of condensed cream of celery soup
what was probably over half a cup of sour cream
a cup of canned diced tomatoes, which I did not drain
plenty of dried cilantro flakes (forgot I had fresh in the fridge I had just bought yesterday, d’oh!), oregano, granulated garlic, cumin, and chili powder.
1 and 1/2 cups brown rice (not instant)
And then covered it with that shredded mexi-cheese from Walmart and covered it with foil and baked it for 2 hours at 375.
If it sucked, I’m not gonna post this recipe. If you’re reading this, it didn’t suck.
EDIT: It was beyond “didn’t suck”. It was sensational :) We wanna add some onions next time, definitely use the fresh cilantro, and figure how to have it be, uh, saucier – saucy-er. Is that a word? Anyway, you get the idea.
