This sounds yummy!! But I will have to change it a bit because of the type 2. Brown rice instead of converted (which I love :( but .......) and the topping will need to be changed a bit but with what I am not sure (I love stuffing!!). But I am determined to make this in some fashion!! LOL

I always use cornbread dressing for this. I don't know if that helps with the type 2 restrictions or not.

Ooh that sounds good! I'm a chicken/turkey and stuffing nut. Put'm both in the same casserole and I'm in heaven.

Question - We don't do converted rice. Would you know a conversion in this recipe for medium grain rice? We use Japanese medium grain rice similar to what is served with sushi. Is converted rice sticky? Is it quick cooking (instant)? I've never had it, so I'm not sure how it cooks up. Should I cook the Japanese rice before putting it in the casserole?

Thanks!
SOB

Converted rice is faster cooking than regular but not as fast as instant.

I think you could use any kind of rice in this one without any problem. I would start by adding an additional 1/2 cup water and adding 15 minutes to total cook time.

You gotta change the name of this dish. It sounds like you made a chicken casserole and didn't eat it all.

converted rice is not sticky and after cooking they are individual rice kernels.

Converted rice (Uncle Ben's for example) is just long grain rice that's been partially cooked (par cooked). It shouldn't be any stickier than regular long grain rice.
