Gluten Free Living – 2020
Chicken Amandine is absolutely fantastic. This amazing casserole makes a perfect one-dish meal for your family. The casserole includes chicken, green beans, wild rice, almonds, pimientos and bacon! Yes, you heard that right. BACON. Yum.
Back in August, some dear friends who lived across the street sold their house and relocated about five minutes away. They are in temporary housing while their house is being built in North Texas. I offered to provide them some food while they were busy packing everything up that last week. I whipped up a batch of Amish Chicken and Noodles and some of our favorite bread earlier in the week. Then, on closing day, I brought them Chicken Amandine, Creamy Sweet Carrots and added some Gluten Free Zucchini Muffins.
It kept them in food for several meals which helped when they were so busy unloading and unpacking everything. They loved the Amish Chicken and Noodles so much she made it a week or so afterward! But they also raved over the Chicken Amandine, carrots and found the muffins fantastic. They couldn’t believe they were gluten free.
I’m always on the hunt for recipes where I can use up leftover rotisserie chicken. Both the Amish Chicken and Noodles and the Chicken Amandine are great recipes for that. Thankfully, they’re also easy and delicious.
Chicken Amandine may be one of those recipes you want to add to your regular monthly rotation. It’s really that good. The crunchiness from the bacon and almonds make it totally satisfying comfort food, in my opinion. It also reheats wonderfully as leftovers. Enjoy.
This one-dish meal recipe is fantastic.
Almonds and bacon add an irresistible crunchiness to the casserole.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Melt butter in saucepan. Add onions.
Cook until onion is crisp tender.
Add the wild rice, the seasoning packet, and chicken broth to the onions in Dutch oven.
Cook covered with lid about 20-25 minutes over low to medium heat until liquid is absorbed. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken, green beans, chicken soup, pimientos, half of the almonds, pepper and garlic powder.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Add chicken mixture to cooked rice mixture.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Spread ingredients into a greased 8×12″ glass baking dish.
Sprinkle with remaining almonds and bacon.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until ingredients are heated through.
