Final month we targeted on BBQ Chicken and made salad, tacos, & a flatbread pizza. This month we’re doing “Consolation Meals Impressed” with a creamy hen & rice casserole, creamy hen Hawaiian haystacks, and a hen & rice soup.

These three meals are tremendous comforting and ideal because the climate is cooling down. Additionally they don’t use any “cream of x” soups (however don’t fear additionally they don’t require a ton of additional prep time)! However the most effective a part of this collection? With a number of further minutes prep on one of many days you may utterly assemble TWO meals without delay — the casserole and the Haystacks. We prefer to eat the Haystacks first (make the creamy hen sauce which is able to go on each meals + some further rice) after which I rapidly assemble the casserole on the similar time. Cowl that casserole with foil and also you’ve actually received no prep time the subsequent day! For those who’re making an enormous batch of rice for the haystacks and the hen broccoli casserole, you may also make some for the soup if you wish to keep away from utilizing the rice sides packet. That mentioned, quite a lot of seasoning are included in that packet, so that you’ll need to compensate with including some further seasonings.

For those who get a colossal-sized rotisserie hen and seize each piece of meat off of it you must have round 5-6 cups complete of shredded rotisserie hen. You’ll use about 2 cups per meal 🙂
