Anna's notes for this recipe:
I made this up when we had a family party and I needed another side dish. You can use any flavor of Rice-a-Roni, I prefer Four Cheese or Broccoli Au Gratin.

I've only used chicken or turkey, but feel free to experiment with other types of meat, or add vegetables if you wish. This is a very versatile recipe! :)

Prepare Rice-A-Roni with butter and water as directed on package (about 25 minutes cooking time).
Meanwhile, place chicken or turkey in food processor and grind until crumbly.
When Rice-a-Roni has reached desired consistency, mix with canned soup and chicken/turkey, then pour into 8- or 9-inch square pan. Top with cheese if desired.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

You Say "Ground Chicken/Turkey", How would this be Not Ground, such as Sliced or Chopped??

Good point Freda! If one doesn't know the chicken is supposed to be ground, it means they missed the previous step. I will change it now.

By the way, one could use sliced or chopped meat if they want to, but I find it easier to mix ground meat.

Update: we used leftover ham last night for this, and it was just as good as poultry!

And I forgot to take a picture - if my husband doesn't inhale the leftover before I get home, maybe I can put some on a plate and photograph it. :)
