This is going to sound odd....but I'm trying recreate a frozen entree!
Dave and I sampled a frozen entree at Costco on Sunday, and we both loved it. It was a Milton's Creamy Chicken with White and Wild Rice casserole. Totally yummy. Problem is, these things are usually so high in fat and sodium that we normally stay away from frozen entrees. Besides, I like to cook too much, and would rather just make it myself.
It wasn't your basic cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup base. It almost had a white sauce or beschemel sauce taste and mouth feel. Maybe parmesan cheese? I looked at the nutrition label and it was 25 grams of fat per serving and had an unmentionable level of sodium, and I know I can do better than that! The ingredients weren't much help, it just specified chicken, rice, veggies, your basic polysorbate 80's, and the 'white sauce' had the required xanthan gum, but didn't show me much else.
Any Chicken, rice and wild casserole recipes out there that don't start with a condensed soup? I'm thinking a light cream cheese or something...anything? And incidentally, that photo on the box looks really NOTHING like what we had! Photo looks kind of oogy....this was really creamy and tasty but not that 'white'!
