Wild Rice and Kale Chicken Casserole – Hearty and delicious casserole made with chicken, wild rice, kale and a good dose of cheese.
I’m feeding you kale. Again. You’re welcome??
Um… yes, of course YOU’re welcome! Healthy wild rice and kale is what you and I craaaave… Always!
I went to the store 3 times in one day to make this for you. You know why? Becaaaaause I forgot my list.
Rule #1 of the Food Club: NEVER go to the grocery store without a list. ONE, you will forget what you needed. TWO, you will buy things you never did before, like soda pop. No one in this household even drinks it!.
Rule #2 of the Food Club: See Rule #1.
Even an app for grocery lists couldn’t save me basically because I can’t save myself from all the food distractions. My current obsession; kale. I remembered to get kale, but forgot the rice. I went back to get the rice, thought I had chicken at home, but NOPE! I had to go back. Duh. Don’t listen to me. I’m just hungry.
One more confession? I was so tired of running around, I bought a rotisserie chicken for din din.
So this recipe, technically, is good for you. Even with all the cheese, we’re still good. What may irk you a bit is all the time that it takes to cook wild rice. Ugh.
But once you’re done with that, it’s smooth sailing. Unless you don’t have leftover cooked chicken… then it’s going to take a bit more than a smooth sail…
You know what’s best about this dish? All the switcharoos and subs that you can do! No wild rice? Use white rice, instead. No chicken? You can do without it! No kale? Spinach is good, too! But, keep the kale. It’s really, really great in this.
And now I’m gonna run to the store with a LIST that includes a jar of Nutella. Oh, me so lucky!
