Grilled chicken baked to perfection in a portabella cream of mushroom sauce over quinoa and brown rice, topped with mild cheddar cheese. Perfect for dinner tonight!
In a skillet, heat up olive oil. Meanwhile, season both sides of the chicken breasts with rosemary, basil, salt and black pepper. Place in skillet just to brown, flip and repeat on other side. Add garlic to skillet.
In a medium casserole dish, take 1 package of instant quinoa and brown rice and lay out in the bottom of the dish. Then arrange portabella mushrooms on top. Once chicken is done browning, put chicken next to mushrooms. Pour cream of mushroom soup over the chicken. Add the remaining package of quinoa. Bake for 20 minutes at 375ºF.
Meanwhile, grate cheese. After 20 minutes, pull out your casserole, sprinkle cheese on, and place back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Partake in the smell of your delicious creation. Eat!
Now, I am not a casserole kinda gal, but when confronted with a plethora of leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I will bow to the gods of one-dish meals. I did some research from famous chefs and their versions of tetrazzini and got a good idea of where I needed to focus. Then I raided the refrigerator. My goal was to not have to purchase anything to make this meal, yet make it extremely tasty. This is the outcome.
I love couscous and could eat it in some variation nearly every day. Not everyone in my household feels this way (I won’t mention the “he” who shall be nameless). In an effort to make couscous a little bit “tastier” to some folks, I thought this quick and easy casserole might hit the spot. This would be a great side dish to any meal or if you are going meatless eat this all by itself!
Tacos … check! Chicken … check! Together in a casserole … check, check! Three of my favorite things all wrapped up into one sensational dish. And I do mean sensational. This is one easy and really tasty casserole that I will be making again and again at my house. I hope you love it as much as we do.
