Easy Rice-A-Roni Casserole

Anna Vandenhazel Recipe

By Anna Vandenhazel annavandenhazel

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! :)

    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. :)
