I Can't Give Anymore

Chicken Green Bean Dump Casserole
No one likes to get dumped, but it is highly appealing for weary cooks to know they can throw things in a pot and call it dinner. Dump casseroles are for those days when you have nothing more to give. The world has sucked it's last drop out of your lifeless body and now you must create dinner.  Dumps work, and they can still be delicious, despite their boorish name.  Some people hate their food to touch and others, like me, love when all the elements hang all over each other like drunk frat girls at a house party.  Everything in one bite.   And mixing chicken and rice with the comfort feel of a Thanksgiving Green Bean casserole works. 

It's creamy and crunchy and the vegetables make it feel more homemade.  The rice is risotto-ey without the work and it works for a quick pantry meal.  

Chicken & Green Bean Dump Casserole

-Chicken Thighs
-Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
-Chicken stock
-3/4 cup white rice
-frozen greens (I used green beans, peas)
-almond milk, milk or sour cream
-French Fried Onions
-flour and seasonings

Brown the well-seasoned and lightly floured chicken in Dutch casserole on both sides, add in chicken stock (about 3 cups) and 1 can of Cream of Mushroom, 1/4 cup almond milk and stir.  When boiling add in 3/4 cup of white rice, frozen vegetables, and 1/3 of the french fried onions, stir well.   Cover and bake for 30 minutes.  Top with remaining onions and bake uncovered another 5 minutes.
