Moms Chicken Scratch Recipe @pinch

We used the four havecheese Rice haveA haveRoni as Whitney suggests, and it added a ton of flavor to this casserole. The buttery, crunchy bread topping is delicious and adds flavor too. A tasty, easy dinner recipe to have in your back pocket on a busy day. This is a family favorite! My mom made this for me as a kid and I loved it. It is similar to a pot pie but without the veggies. I think its best to season the chicken to your own liking or just leave it plain. Using flavored rice gives this dish an outstanding flavor along with the flaky buttery breading baked on top.

Intructions :

  • Grease a 9x13 baking pan. Set aside. Prepare rice according to directions. Dump the rice into the bottom of the dish and smooth over
  • Pour the chicken on top of the rice so it's completely covered. Set aside. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

  • To make the breading, in another medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Melt butter in a separate bowl and then add to the flour mixture
  • Add the milk and stir until smooth and creamy (should have the same consistency as pancake batter)
  • Pour the breading mixture on top of the soup mixture. Bake in the oven 35-40 mins
