Hi all. I don't know whether any of you care, being the foodies you are, and probably appalled by something as mundane as chicken casserole, but it's raining like a big dog here in Iowa and I've got this left over grilled chicken and don't feel like main/veggie/starch, several pot/pan thing and said to myself "Hmmmm, when I was visiting son and family a few months ago, the whole family was taken with a casserole I made, just to use up the leftovers in the fridge.
Ergo, what's in the fridge: Leftover grilled chicken thighs, broccoli, etc., so thought to myself that I love to fly by the seat of my pants in the kitchen and made the following:
Knorr broccoli rice side (bite me - it was in my pantry); 2 huge grilled chicken thighs cut in cubes, broccoli, mushrooms sautéed in butter and olive oil with 4 pressed cloves of garlic and a hefty pour of dry white wine, half a left over onion, chopped, a drained can of white hominy, a drained can of sliced carrots, 5 sprigs fresh thyme, 2 bay leaves, mix all, pour into casserole dish, top with good shake of parmesan and bake 30 mins @ 350.
Oh, ambrosia!!! So very good. Next time don't know what will end up in there, but that's the exciting part, no?
