So it started with an innocent can in my pantry. This one to be exact.
As I stood there looking in the pantry for something to make for dinner, I turned the can around, read the recipe and decided to make it. I had all the ingredients on hand (which in itself is a miracle) and went to work. Here is how it turned out:
It is a creamy chicken and rice dish with cheese. Basically it is the can of soup with rice, water and a few basic spices, two butterflied chicken breasts, and some frozen vegetables (which I forgot to add) cooked covered in the oven for about an hour, then topped with melted cheese. It was good, but the chicken was a little bland and slightly dry, though that is partly my fault as I added extra rice and forgot to adjust the water.
I have gotten into making dinners though that produce decent amounts of taste, and have some substance to them, yet for as little as possible. Like this dish, probably cost $5 to make and it easily will feed us another dinner and maybe a lunch too, so in all about 5-6 servings.
