  1. Chicken and rice are basic, comfort food. The cheese sprinkled biscuits on top make it a favorite family treat with the youngsters aiming at the biscuits. I suppose it's OK to use chicken and rice leftovers.

    1. Chicken and rice leftovers would be perfect for this, Duta! It's still chilly and rainy here so it's a good warm meal to eat and all in one pan makes it easy too. Have a great week, my friend!

  2. Pam, Love chicken and rice casseroles...especially with the biscuits on top! Our version would delete the pimento and pearl onions and substitute onion flakes (it's a texture thing with me) and then add peas, a bit extra cheese and red pepper flakes. Have a terrific month of May! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Your version sounds great to me, Dave! I get it with the texture thing. Peas and the cheese are really good with it and red pepper flakes would add a little or lot of heat. Yum! Thanks and you have a terrific month of May also! Take care

The smells of slow cooking spread around the house and impart a unique warmth matched only by the flavour of the food.
