141.0…15-Minute Chicken & Rice Dinner

Recently I was sifting through recipes trying to figure out what to make for dinner this week. I came across a Campbell’s Kitchen recipe that my dad had sent me awhile ago with a note on it that said “This one looks good!” It’s made with a can of Campbell’s cream of chicken soup, but so what.

Make sure you use INSTANT rice. I bought the wrong kind of rice and had to cook everything separately. Regardless, it all worked out. It wasn’t a super exciting meal but it was quick to make and we did enjoy it. I also added some cayenne pepper for a kick plus salt and pepper. Thanks Dad! :)

Breakfast this morning was pineapple Chobani yogurt, Special K granola and mixed berries.

After taking the kids to school, I dropped my husband’s car off for service then hit the gym for some weights and treadmill action.

Lunch was with Annette at Wahoo’s. Fish tacos rule!

I headed over to the school and did some volunteering before heading home. It’s going to be a leftovers kind of night tonight. :)

What was your favorite meal growing up?


  1. A favorite of mine is "Chicken Casserole" which could be a million different casseroles, I know. But this particular one is amazing and everyone loves it. No surprise it starts with Campbells Cream of Mushroom.

    Now that I'm a vegetarian my Gramma goes out of her way and makes me my own variety with fresh mushrooms instead of chicken. We actually had it last week when a lot of family was in town! And you know which casserole was gone first? Mine! Everyone now adds a bit of mine to their plate which I don't really appreciate!

    I'm not sure if I've told you this but I am constantly jealous of your Wahoo's!
