Ahhh a new squishy baby. It seems to be happening all the time in my Mommy group. I love that our group is so great at just plain being there for our friends. I have to admit though with all these new babies coming along we have had tons of meal trains happening. We’ve done everything from take out, gift cards, dropping off meals and freezer meal parties.
I like to not overthink things and have something in my pocket I can count on and whip up the day before so I’d love to share with you my one and only Mommy Meal for New Moms.
If you’re one of my darling friends who has had a new baby you’ve gotten it or will get it. It’s also great for other occasions when you want to drop off a meal. I love it because it’s easy, it’s good and you can freeze it oh and leftover-yes.
I make a double batch at a time for the family and one for us at the same time!
Chicken and Rice Ingredients:
2-3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts-thawed-although they can be a little frozen
1 Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Bag of Minute Rice
1/2 Cup of Milk
4 Pats of Butter
Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 2 Quart Dish-square or round works fine. I prefer Pyrex. In a bowl mix one bag of rice, soup and milk. Pour mixture into dish. Dice uncooked chicken. It is actually easier if it’s still a bit frozen and completely cooks in the oven so don’t worry. Place diced chicken evenly over the top of the rice mixture. Add pats of butter on top and salt and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes covered-done.
I usually cover this with foil and take in one of those disposable square pans. You can write on the foil with a sharpie cook time so they can pop it in the oven when they’re ready and you’re not rushing over during dinner time. It’s also great to freeze in case they have leftovers already. Top the meal off with some rolls, salad and a dessert and you’re good to go.
It’s so easy and tasty and makes for great leftovers. It’s also nice when you have a meal train come up to not have to think of something!
What’s your go to meal train meal?
