A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
Eating with Ellie: Rice is Nice - Chicken, Broccoli, Brown Rice Casserole
The 76th recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Chicken, Broccoli, Brown Rice Casserole, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book You Have It Made, on page 181. The theme for the week was chosen by Margaret: Rice is Nice.
Ingredient list: chicken, salt, pepper, olive oil, onion, garlic, thyme, flour, white wine, chicken broth, milk, lemon zest, Parmesan cheese, brown rice, and broccoli.
This is a whole lot of ingredients touching in a small space...I'm not that fond of this sort of thing, casseroles in general, but I had chicken and rice and broccoli and it seemed like a good time to try it as I do like all those ingredients. Since I could see all the ingredients in the recipe, I figured I could separate them all and eat them that way. And that worked. I did like the flavor of the lemon and the wine in the mix. Other than that, it was kind of bland and I'm not really sure how I would jazz that up. The little bit of cheese melted on the top was nice. Would I make this one again? Probably not, not the fault of the recipe, just that I'm not all that fond of casseroles in general...but once in awhile one should make one just to see if that's changed. It hasn't. That, however, doesn't mean you won't like it. :-)
