I love a casserole !
In fact, I love anything that is easy to make, is filling,
and my family will eat.
So when I can create a casserole that becomes a hit, especially with
the Grandloves – well, that recipe becomes a keeper!
Or, in this case – it’s a “Winner! Winner! Rice and Chicken Dinner!”
Best of all, its quick ‘n easy and can be assembled in minutes.
I hope this becomes a fave with you, too.
Mexi Cheesy Rice ‘n Chicken Skillet
#ad This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and recipe are all mine.
I am an advocate for homecooked meals.
Especially on the weekends when the grandchildren are here.
Eating at the table is a must.
Saying grace before dinner is a must.
No distractions. No phones. No TV.
Just me and Grandpa and our favorite, three little ones
who are allowed to talk until their heart is content about what they love,
what they think and feel – and what makes them happy.
There is one condition.
They have to eat! 🙂
This dish is one of their faves and one they ask for frequently.
Chicken Tenders, Rice, Cheese and topped with crushed Doritos.
I start with a large pot of my Homemade Mexican Rice.
(see recipe below)
Next, add a bag of thawed Walmart’s Tyson Chicken Nuggets to a ziplock baggie,
and add 3 Tbs of Taco Seasoning Mix. Shake well until the nuggets are coated.
Layer a skillet with half of the tenders.
Top the nuggets with a layer of the rice, about half of the mixture.
Then, sprinkle a layer of cheese, chopped green onions and
fresh, chopped cilantro.
Then, repeat with a second layer.
Finally, sprinkle on some crushed tortillas, fritos or Doritos.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes until
the cheese is bubbly.
I love to use Tyson A+ products in my recipes.
Not only are they convenient and perfect for busy Moms (and Grammy’s),
but the kids love their taste.
They have 100% natural ingredients, offer simple preparation.
Crispy on the outside and juice on the inside makes these nuggets a perfect
choice for this recipe.
Best of all, these products and more are
part of Tyson’s A+ Program.

This is a PERFECT Back-to-School Recipe.
In fact, I buy the 2 lb Bag and fix two skillets, one which can be
frozen and heated later. Because to be honest,
between after-school activities and homework – this Grammy is
plum tuckered out at the end of the day.
(Yes, this is how they take EVERY picture. 😀 )
I hope you love this recipe!
