Chicken and Black Bean Casserole

KATERS0404 0

"This can use leftover chicken or chicken breasts. I usually make it the day after we have roast chicken. The recipe calls for baking, but the ingredients can also be added to a slow cooker and cooked on Low for 7 hours. We serve this with cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream, salsa, black olives, and guacamole."

My rice cooked fine in the 45 min. prescribed by the recipe. I did make sure the casserole was well covered while cooking because I thought the previous reviewer's problem might have been that all of the moisture cooked off. I used crushed tomatoes instead of stewed and added just a little bit of water. I also added cheese on top because I left out the chilis and cilantro because of my restricted diet. I thought it would be too bland otherwise. Overall, a satisfying dish.

Very tasty and filling. I used crushed tomatoes and added some garlic and some frozen corn and some extra rice.


I scaled the recipe to 10 servings and made this for a family gathering. I used long grain white rice and it did not cook at all in the 45 minute time stated in the recipe. Luckily I had a lot of side dishes prepared because no one could eat the main course. Maybe I should have used instant/minute rice - the recipe does not specify. Or maybe the time should have been scaled since the dish was scaled. In any event I tried cooking some of the leftovers in the crock pot the next day and at the 5-hour mark - on High the rice still was not cooked enough to eat.
