    Here is a quick little side dish (about 25 minutes total) that is both tasty & filling. I've made it quite a few times.

    10 oz cream of chicken soup
    1 1/2 cups chicken broth
    1 1/2 cups uncooked, instant rice
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    dash of pepper

    Heat the soup & broth in a 2 qt saucepan over medium-high heat to boiling.
    Stir in the rice, cheese & pepper.
    Cover pan & remove from heat.
    Let stand for 10-15 minutes, until rice is cooked & most of the liquid is absorbed.

    Sounds like some tasty flavors...But, Instant Rice? Sorry, it's a Chef thing. They pull your Union Card for even mentioning that stuff...JJ[​IMG]

    Just a quick derail here... please......

    Chef JJ, how do they make minute rice? Do they cook it and then dehydrate it?

    Oh and ...looks good Tumbleweed.

    Yes...The biggest problem with it is it gets overcooked and the kernel pop. After dehydation there is little texture and no flavor...
    I grew up on Minute Rice. Mom was a great cook but a Modern Woman of the 50's and 60's and other than old family recipes, used convenience foods. Canned Veg and Cambell's Cream of whatever, filled the pantry shelves...JJ

    The dish looks great tumbleweed. Simple and tasty. 

    But I'll take the time and wait the extra 19 minutes for my rice.  Haha!  

    Seriously though .... nice dish! b
