Avocado Ranch Chicken Casserole

Meals that I can make in one pan are my complete jam. With all of the colder, rainy days going on lately I was really in the mood for a hearty casserole that I could put together quickly. The quick meals have been necessary because life has been absolutely bonkers, but that’s a whole other story I won’t bore you with now. This avocado ranch chicken casserole fit the bill absolutely perfectly. It had everything I needed in a complete meal all baked to perfection in one big old 9 x 13 pan. That meant we also had plenty of leftovers. Yay for not having to cook each night!

I placed my chicken in the baking dish first and seasoned them well with salt, pepper and garlic powder. These boneless skinless chicken breasts were huge and perfect for a generous serving each!
After that, I just had to add mushrooms, the rice, lots of avocado ranch dressing, chicken stock and parmesan cheese on top. It was so easy! I let the whole shebang cook for an hour to make sure the rice really absorbed the liquid. It also helped to give the occasional stir during the hour.

Once the hour was up, dinner was ready! Oh my goodness, I loved how everything just melded together gorgeously. The dressing just soaked into the chicken and rice. The mushrooms gave it some extra heartiness and flavor. I called this 4 portions, and they were very generous portions since Marc and I were hungry. This can easily be stretched to 6 or even 8 smaller servings though. Hope you all love this super simple one pan meal too! xoxo
