Recipe Ingredients for Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

1 1/3 cups uncooked white rice
2 2/3 cups water
4 boneless chicken breast halves
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups mild salsa
4 cups cooked white rice

Recipe Directions for Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

  1. Place rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, place chicken breast halves into a large saucepan, and fill the pan with water. Bring to a boil, and cook for 20 minutes, or until done. Remove chicken from water. When cool enough to handle, cut meat into bite-size pieces.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  4. In a medium bowl, combine Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses. In a separate bowl, mix together cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, onion, and salsa. Layer 1/2 of the rice, 1/2 of the chicken, 1/2 of the soup and salsa mixture, and 1/2 of the cheese mixture in prepared dish. Repeat layers, ending with cheese.

  5. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes, or until bubbly.
