Stovetop Chicken and Rice Casserole

I know it isn't the most attractive looking meal but it really is fabulous. It is a recipe we have created together with leftovers. It is a great way to use up leftover chicken or rice or even vegetables and it is so easy! I've written the recipe as if you are making it fresh so just adjust where needed if using leftovers.

2 chicken breasts, cubed
4 cups cooked rice
1/3 cup white wine
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
black pepper
garlic salt
poultry seasoning
all-purpose chicken seasoning
see notes for variations

Brown chicken in a large pan. Add in cooked rice and "fry" together. Season with black pepper, garlic salt, poultry seasoning and chicken seasoning. Add in wine, letting it cook off. Add soup and heat through. *Add in variations if desired and heat through. Serve warm.

*Notes: At this point we add in whatever we feel like. Tonight is was shredded cheese and mushrooms. You could also use a variety of vegetables.
The chicken seasoning is a blend we bought at the farmers market. If you don't have one that you use, let me know and I can tell you what is on ours.

Great recipe. I was planning to make traditional chicken and rice in the oven tonight, but had something else baking and couldn't. I did a search and found your blog. This was the perfect alternative...in fact it's better! I used about a 1/4 packet onion soup mix instead of the other spices and it came out great. Thanks for the recipe! My kids loved it.
