Today I am sharing a quick, no fuss rotisserie chicken casserole. I often wonder why I have never shared our dinners, treats and fun recipes that my mom, gram and I make on our blog. Many of you have written over the last year and said, “what do you all eat?” , “who cooks?”, “do you all eat dinner together?” I do love to cook as does my mom and gram. Although, my gram does more baking.
1 cooked rotisserie chicken
1 frozen package of cut up squash
2 cups white or brown rice
1 stick butter (or butter substitute)
2 cups water
12 ounce jar of chicken homestyle gravy
Salt & Pepper
30 minutes – 375 degrees – 10 minute prep
Melt butter in microwave and pour in a 10 or 12″ baking casserole pan. Add rice spreading evenly over the butter. Add 2 cups of water. Cook frozen squash in microwave according to directions and layer on top of rice. Layer cut pieces of chicken on top of squash and cover with gravy. Season with salt and pepper and bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees or until gravy is bubbling. Oven temperatures vary so you may need to cook a little longer or less.
Boom done. Quick and easy! 30 minutes later, we were eating and life was good.
I made this dinner the other night after we got home from soccer practice and needless to say, like many of you, time is limited. I stopped at the market and grabbed a freshly cooked rotisserie chicken which I used to make this casserole. Of course, you can make your own chicken but cooked rotisserie chickens from the market place are a huge time saver. My mom and I use them all the time when cooking :).
