Tasty Tuesday: Scalloped Chicken

We love this delicious, healthy, inexpensive casserole. It's one of those dishes that just hits the spot on a cold winter evening.

Scalloped Chicken
1 c. uncooked rice
2 chicken bouillon cubes
3 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. chopped onion
3 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. marjoram*
2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. shredded cheese (opt.)
2 to 4 Tbsp. pimento (opt.)
2 c. cooked chicken
3 slices bread, cubed

Cook rice according to instructions, adding chicken bouillon. Saute onion in butter; add flour, salt, pepper, and marjoram. Remove from heat; slowly stir in milk. Return to heat and cook until mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Bring to boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Add cheese, stir until smooth. Add chicken and rice. Put in a 1 1/2 qt. greased casserole dish. Top with bread cubes and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

* Can use basil instead. The first couple of times I made this I didn't have marjoram and used basil instead. It has a bit of a stronger flavor than marjoram but I think we almost like it better that way.
