Make sure to REPIN this recipe

Sooooo….. I feel like I am behind on everything! This happens each year around Christmas — so the last thing I want to do is spend a ton of time in the kitchen making dinner —- if it was cookies I have ALL the time in the world to make cookies

But weekday dinner not so much .

But what I love about this dish is that you can easily use leftovers ( like chicken and rice) and make a brand new meal – it is like the leftovers got a yummy makeover

The recipe is whipped up in under 10 minutes of prep ( as long as you are using leftovers)

I really hope you enjoy this recipe – Eric and my family LOVE IT and I love making it so I can get back to watching my ABC Family Christmas movies on Netflix streaming —- which might be something I am doing right now 🙂 ( ps 12 Dates of Christmas is a SUPER cute movies )

Okay back to the recipe

You might wonder what parsley is doing in this picture

I ended up putting parsley in this dish because I had some on hand – if it is in the fridge it is up for grabs

I really hate throwing away food – but it works in this dish

I ended up using 2 cloves of garlic as well – not in the picture it was a last minute add in —- Eric HATES garlic but loves any dishes he does not know it is in …. shhhhhh do not tell him

I use 3 cream of something soup — meaning this dish is VERY not gluten free

Also the cheese used was not pictured my dad was shredding the block of cheese while I was taking this picture
