Chicken alfredo and Rice Casserole

Pat Duran


BHG magazine recipe. This is a great recipe - Instead of the store bought sauce- try using the Homemade Alfredo Sauce recipe I posted for this recipe - It makes just enough for this recipe.

How to Make Chicken alfredo and Rice Casserole


  1. Preheat oven to 350^
    In large bowl combine pasta sauce and milk. Stir in rice, chicken, peas, peppers nuts and basil. Pour into a 1 1/2 quart baking dish or casserole dish.
    Bake,, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover and stir. Combine bread crumbs and melted butter; sprinkle on top. Bake uncovered, 20-25 minutes more or until heated through and crumbs are golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
    If using my Homemade Alfredo Sauce don't use the 1/2 cup of milk above.
  2. Homemade Alfredo Sauce:
    1/2 cup butter, only
    8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
    1 cup half and half,only
    1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
    1 Tablespoon garlic powder
    pepper and salt to taste
    In a medium saucepan, melt butter. When butter is almost melted, add the cream cheese in pieces,.Stir until butter and cream cheese are well blended. Add the half and half, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and then shake pepper on top. Stir every few minutes. After well mixed and sauce-like, remove from heat and set aside to thicken up. Stirring every few minutes. Great on tortellini and to dip bread sticks in too!
    NOTE: use only 10 oz. of this sauce refrigerate remainder or use as a dipping sauce later.
