Good Non-Dairy Dish

I am lactose intolerant so making a baked casserole is hard for me.  This recipe is a very good one. Most of them have cheese or cream in them. This is what is left in the dish after we had supper.

Chicken with Rice and Vegetables

5 boneless chicken breasts or boneless dark meat
1 cup long grain rice
2 1/4 C. water with 3 regular size chicken bullion cubes dissolved in it
12 oz. package of mixed vegetables
salt, pepper, 2 T. butter

Season chicken
in a 4 quart baking dish put dry rice, vegetables, water with bullion dissolved in it.   Salt, pepper and sliced butter on top.  Place chicken on top of rice.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hour. Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes to lightly brown the chicken.  This time makes for a very soft rice.  If you like your rice firmer cook for less time.

Today I used canned vegetables but put them in 30 minutes after rice was started and I had chicken strips which I added then.  I only uncovered for about 10 minutes.

This is a good way to eat rice with no cheese added.  But you could probably add cheese at the end if you wanted too.
