Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey & Rice

We've got turkey.  Wonderful, moist turkey.  We were gone over the weekend, so this is the first night of using up the leftovers.

The original recipe is Chicken & Rice, and is quite a regular guest over at my parent's house.  My family loves it, and it's been around for years.  This is a great meal in terms of using food storage.  Basically, all the ingredients are items that you probably already have sitting around.  This casserole is also easy to make, but it does take awhile to cook-but it is well worth it.

So here you go:

Turkey & Rice or Chicken & Rice

4 Cups of diced cooked Turkey or Chicken
1 Stick of butter
1 Cup of Rice
1 Packet of Lipton Onion Soup
3 Cups of Chicken Broth
1 Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
French's Fried Onions

In a 350 degree oven, stick the butter in a 9 x 13 pan & melt the butter

 When the butter is melted, pour the rice in
 And the turkey {or chicken}
 Sprinkle half of the Onion Soup packet over the turkey {or chicken} & rice

In a measuring cup, measure out 1 cup of broth.  Add the cream of chicken soup & the remaining soup mix.  Mix everything together. 

 Pour the mixture over the turkey-rice.
 With the remaining 2 cups of broth, pour over everything.
 You don't have to mix anything together-just dump & go.  Place some foil on top.  Cook for an hour.  After the hour, take off the foil and let it cook for another 20 minutes
 This is how it should look when you take it out of the oven:
 And then when you mix it up.  It should be moist, but not liquid-like.  If there's still alot of liquid, stick it back into the oven.
When you serve it up, sprinkle some fried onions on top {I forgot to buy some at the grocery store}. This will serve about 6 people.
