Paula Deen's Chicken and Rice Casserole
*you can't go wrong w/ Paula! This is a GREAT one dish recipe! My kids love it and so do we.
-2 cans of green beans, rinsed and drained
-3 cups diced cooked chicken
-1 medium onion diced and sauteed
-1 (8oz) can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
-1 (4 oz) can pimentos
-1 can condensed cream of celery soup
-1 cup mayonnaise
-6 oz long-grain rice, cooked according to package directions
-1 cup grated Sharp Cheddar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 3 qt. casserole dish. Bake for 20-25.
*I started making these b/c I couldn't find any w/o partially hydrogenated oil and we really like them. They are easy and quick!
-3c. whole wheat flour
-1 c. warm water
-1/4 tsp. baking powder
-1 tsp. salt
-1/4 c. oil
Measure liquid ingredients into mixing bowl.
Add baking powder and salt kneading flour until dough is workable. NOT TOO STIFF. Let stand 10 minutes.
Shape into 8-10 balls and let stand 10 more minutes.
Roll out one at a time and cook in skillet on medium high about 20-30 seconds per side. I just kind of eyeball it.
