Cheesy Chicken and Rice

First, I want to begin by saying a HUGE thank you to all of you who have linked up with Tickle My Tastebuds over the last 6 months!  But, I am leaving the hop due to time constraints and other fun things I am wanting to do with my blog… however, Cathy , Lori and Christie will still be hosting the hop.  I am not sure of the details yet, but you can head over to their blogs and learn more!  I encourage you to continue linking up with them… I know I will!  Today’s recipe is a quick and easy one that can be thrown together on busy school nights and on the table in a jiffy.  Cheese, chicken, and rice… plus some veggies.  How can you go wrong?

  1. That looks good Julia. I do have one question about the recipe. The title says there is cheese, but there is none listed in the ingredients list.

  2. Cheese soup, not cream soup! Thank you for letting me know! I don’t know what I was thinking. LOL

  3. Great. Thanks. I wasn’t sure on the soup and figured you could just use about any of the cream soups and didn’t think that was the cheese part. lol
