From the Weekday Dinners - Done! cards.

I'd say this recipe is pretty good. I had nothing measured, although I did have things out of the cupboards and fridge, and it was done in about 30 minutes.

The chicken is delicious, and the rice is pretty good. DH liked it because he could tell it was made with a can of tomato soup, which is why I was less than enthused about it.

A couple of things I'd do differently next time:
- add water to the tomato juice to make a little less than a cup. The rice was just a little runny, and reducing the liquid a little would help.
- start with only 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs, instead of 3/4. I had a bunch leftover.
- add a second zucchini
- add another clove of garlic, for a total of 3
- use the whole onion
- cut the cream cheese into little cubes so it melts faster and more evenly

Ann....

Thanks for sharing. I'm heading to the grocery store and can't wait to try all the recipes. Your tips are awesome, and I will modify accordingly!

As always....thank you!

They're in the Weekday Dinners Done cards. Because they're a (soon to be) current set with recipes NOT provided electronically by HO, I do not recommend posting them here. Posting copyrighted material can get you in hot water. But beyond that, our business (and home office's) is SELLING tools and cookbooks. If we post them willy-nilly, then we reduce the chances that customers/consultants will purchase the books and we also increase the chances of errors in the recipes.
