Chicken and Rice Bake-a-Roni

Well it's not quite Tuesday, but I thought I'd share a new recipe so you can make it a Tasty Tuesday, if the mood strikes you. I found the original recipe on Pinterest, and I wanted to link to it here, but of course now I cannot find my pin! Figures. But anyway, I tweaked the recipe a bit, and made it for the first time this evening. So naturally I feel the need to share. So cheers to sharing, right?

I'm calling this recipe Chicken and Rice Bake-a-Roni. Catchy, no? Here's your list of ingredients.
  • 1 Family size box of Rice-a-Roni, Chicken-flavored
  • 1-22 oz bag of Frozen Grilled Chicken Strips (thawed and diced)
  • 1-10 oz can of Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1-1/2 Cups of Sour Cream
  • 1 Can of French Fried Onions
And the deets:
  1. Prepare the Rice-a-Roni, per its package directions.
  2. When the rice is finished, add in the can of soup and the sour cream. Stir well.
  3. Add in the chicken and stir to combine.
  4. Spray a 9x13 pan w/cooking spray, and then spread in your rice and chicken mixture.
  5. Bake uncovered at 350° for 30-40 minutes, until heated through.
  6. Pour the can of French Fried Onions on top, bake another 5 minutes.
You should end up with something that looks a little bit like this:

And in a semi-random side note, I'll just add that I know what Ian Somerhalder's character, Damon, is about to say in the first gif in this post. In that scene Damon says, "here's to duplicity."

I think that proves once and for all--lest there was any lingering doubt amongst you--that I do watch entirely too much of The Vampire Diaries.
