Chicken Rice a Roni Casserole Recipe

This recipe was a perfect fit for the Pantry Challenge! I had all the ingredients, so once again, no need for the grocery store!! I am so glad I stumbled on this recipe. It makes a quick and easy weeknight meal. Rice a Roni is one of my favorites and even though I don't make it much anymore because I'm trying to eliminate processed foods, it did the job and cleaned the last box out of my pantry! I will be making the rice from scratch from now on and using it with this recipe again.YUM!

What you need:
1 small box chicken Rice a Roni
1 c. carrots, finely sliced 
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 c. sour cream
3 c. cooked chicken
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare Rice a Roni according to package directions, adding the sliced carrots in the last 5 minutes of cooking. Then stir in soup, sour cream, chicken, salt and pepper. Spread rice mixture in a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Top with cheese. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
