Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole (with no cream soups!)
Serves: 8-10 servings
  • 4 cups chicken broth (I avoid canned broth or bouillon because they are also loaded with MSG. Here's my easy homemade chicken broth recipe, which includes frighteningly ugly pictures of a chicken carcass. Again, try not to scream.)
  • 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 2-3 cups cooked chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
  • ½ teaspoon (or more) garlic powder
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1½ cups cream (heavy whipping cream, or fresh cream which has risen to the top of whole, raw milk)
  1. In a large pot, bring chicken broth, carrots and onion to a boil at high heat.
  2. Add rice, stir, and place the lid on the pot.
  3. Reduce heat to low and cook the rice and vegetables in the broth for 45 minutes.
  4. When the rice is done, stir in cooked chicken, garlic powder and cream.
  5. Shake in liberal amounts of sea salt for best flavor.
  6. Cook ingredients for about five more minutes to heat the chicken and cream.
  7. Serve directly from pot, or pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  8. Cover and heat in a 350° oven for 20-30 minutes or until hot through and through.
