So, I got some chicken, and I got some cooked rice, and I want to bake.

I was thinking doing an egg batter and bake ’em in the rice, but I dunno about whether the rice would crispy up like I’d like. ¬†Anybody got any suggestions? – Because the wife just walked in.

[UPDATE: I tried to do an egg batter, but the rice and cheese didn’t stick, so I just dumped the rice and cheese and egg into the cast iron pot , let it cook up, then tossed it in the oven to broil¬†with the chicken. I’ll let you know if it was awful.]

[Another UPDATE: My wife told me to cook the rice/cheese/egg mix in a ceramic pan next time so that she wouldn’t have to peel tin foil off of the last few bits remaining, so I’m going to say: not-awful.]

  1. If you had more time, I’d say egg batter and puree’ the rice ..
    .
    Hmmm. Roast the chicken, and fry the rice in an egg (or two) and add random frozen vegetables and some teriyaki or soy/tamari to taste, serve as a side to the chicken. Fake-Asian cuisine..

  2. Midwest insta-caserole:
    .
    Pre-heat oven to 350.
    Layer in baking dish:
    rice
    chicken
    canned cream-of-whatever soup
    rice
    .
    Top rice layer should be thin enough you can see soup.
    .
    Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

      1. Does anyone eat cream of mushroom soup on its own? I’ve got a lot of recipes using it as an ingredient, but I’ve never said, “Mmm, I think I’ll have a nice hot bowl of cream of mushroom soup!”

  3. Is pizza an option?
    .
    I’m guessing not, but if I had chicken and rice, I’d just do a stir fry and have a chicken bowl.

  4. Moe, dude, one word. Well, three.
    .
    Pyrex
    .
    Coconut oil.
    .
    Ger yourselves some Pyrex baking dishes, give ’em a thin layer of coconut oil, almost nothing sticks. Available cheap, around here, at any resale shop, although the older ones aren’t necessarily microwave safe.
