Gluten-Free Chicken and Rice Casserole

I promised you I would have a couple of my own casserole creations to inspire you for this month’s Create a Casserole Challenge.  This one was quick to make using leftovers, and resulted in a delightful tasting dish.  It does not use cream soup or cheese, but it does contain Ranch dressing which means it is not dairy free.  However, if you cook dairy free, I’m sure you can find an enjoyable substitute.  If you like exact measurements, you are out of luck with this one, but trust me, you can do it.

Gluten-Free Chicken and Rice Casserole

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a rectangular baking dish.  Spread you leftover rice on the bottom of the dish.  Sprinkle it with a little Italian dressing.  Put the chicken pieces on top and sprinkle on some more Italian dressing.  Squirt some ranch dressing over that.

Casseroles without a thick soup or cheese in the middle do not hold together as well, but that’s okay.  It’s still good food.

I bet this is delicious! Sometimes simple casseroles like this are family favorites. I am working on a casserole tonight - something vegetarian, and hopefully, delicious! Stay tuned!
That's what I love about casseroles. You just throw random ingredients in a dish, bake it, and somehow magic is created!
For a dairy free ranch dressing you can combine 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, sprinkle of salt, 1/4 tsp garlic pepper and 1/4 tsp Italian season mix. Adjust the amount of lemon juice to make the dressing or dip the consistency you desire.
i will have to try this one! thanks for sharing!

That looks great.
What a great way to eat chicken and rice. Thank you for sharing this on Friday Foodie Fix.
