Hey everyone, it's Friday! Yippee! And you know what that means, it's time for Foodie Friday with Gollum at Designs by Gollum. We're all invited for a potluck dinner. Make sure to stop by Gollum's (aka Michael's) at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ to see what everyone is bringing this week.
Have you ever had every good intention of having a wonderful meal on the table when your DH came home from work, only to look at the clock and realize that you've been blogging all afternoon and now have about 30 minutes to get something together? Not that I have ever done that, but just in case you ever find your self in that situation I'm going to share a really quick dinner that we love. My grandmother used to make chicken and yellow rice. I have no idea how she made it, but I'm sure her recipe was much more involved than this.
3 ingredient, one pot meal. I serve with Sister Schubert's dinner rolls, because there is no way
I could make any that are this good! Pick up a package of saffron yellow rice and 1 can of cream of chicken soup. I usually have some frozen cooked chicken on hand to use in casseroles, but you could probably substitute canned chicken. Tear it into smallish pieces.
Prepare the rice according to package directions. When it is almost done (approx 10-15 minutes, add the chicken and cream of chicken soup. I generally add 3/4 of a can, but you can add the entire can if you like.
I usually serve this with a green vegetable or a salad, but I was so busy blogging, um, reading "War and Peace" this afternoon that I forgot! This really is a comfort food to me, and I hope you like it too! Now let's run over the Gollum's place and see who brought dessert!
