Brown Rice Casserole

Brown Rice Casserole

Introduction

Yummy casserole I found at $5 Dinners that I've adapted to my tastes (http://www.5dollardinners.com/brown-rice-
casserole/)! I've used ground turkey, chicken and pork and they've all been wonderful. It also works beautifully with left over rotisserie chicken. It freezes great so it's a mainstay in my freezer.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cup Chicken Broth
    2 1/4 cup Water
    1 tbsp Onion powder
    1/2 tbsp garlic powder
    4 stalks Celery
    1 1/2 cup Brown Rice, long grain, (uncooked)
    1 lb Ground chicken (you can use ground pork, ground chicken, or left over rotisserie chicken as well)
    1 can cream style corn
    1/2 pkg frozen Broccoli, chopped
    1 1/2 cups Shredded Monterey Cheese

Tips

I chill any left overs in the fridge over night, then cut out serving side pieces (it holds together like lasagna when it's cold) and place them on a cook a sheet and flash freeze them. Once frozen vacuum seal into single serving portions and keep in the freezer. This gives me an air tight storage without squishing the rice into mush.


Directions

1. Combine first five ingredients in a stock pot. Bring to a boil. Then turn down to a low boil and cover. Simmer for 30 minutes. Turn off burner and let sit for 5 minutes.

2. Brown the chicken in a frying pan until fully cooked. Set aside.

3. When the rice is finished, add the corn and meat. Stir together.

4. In a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch glass pan, spread the rice mixture.

5. Top with cheese and sprinkle with the broccoli.

6. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 13 minutes, or until cheese is fully melted.
