The Common Room is hosting a Potluck recipe link-up. Ahh...... potlucks, I have been to many and brought food to some....now that we home church we don't get to potluck much anymore! Except on Sundays when we get together with my mom and dad then we sorta potluck I guess, one of us brings dessert and the other does the main dish. Anyway we still take dinners to folks with a new baby or family who've lost a loved one. And this is the recipe I usually make:
This is one of those "throw it all together, no measuring, taste it and see if it's right" kinda recipes, I will try and give some amounts though!
1 chicken boiled, de-boned and chopped.
or 2 large cans of chicken
While the chicken is cooking, prepare 4 cups rice, you can use Minute rice if you like.
When the rice and chicken are done put them in a large bowl and add 1 16 oz container of sour cream, 1 or 2 small cans diced green chili, 1 can Rotel, or some of your favorite salsa, 2 handfuls grated cheese, 1 can diced olives, 1 onion diced (my mom would add 2-3;), Add garlic salt and regular salt and pepper to taste. You can also add Cumin, yum, I LOVE Cumin. Stir all and taste test, to see if you need more salt, ect. This makes a TON of casserole, It will feed my family 1 1/2 times. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. This freezes nicely, and can be made a meal with torillas and salad!
