March Mission Meal {Chicken, Rice Casserole, Salad, Rolls}


Crock pot Chicken, brown rice with broccoli

The women and children loved this month’s mission meal. We made chicken, broccoli, rice casserole. It is actually a crock pot recipe I’ve posted here and I converted it into an oven recipe because I wanted to make four casseroles. Well, you can imagine I don’t own four crock pots. In fact, I only own one. In the oven went the chicken and broth with onion for a couple of hours. Then I added the rest of the ingredients except the sour cream and cheese. I waited the last hour to stir it in and cooked the meal until the rice was fully cooked. I found some extra bread crumbs and cheese at the shelter and sprinkled it on top.

IMG_0950The ladies went crazy over this meal and it was so easy to make homemade. I’m so grateful to be able to give them a nourishing meal without the additives and preservatives. I had several women ask for cooking lessons. I plan to share some freezer skills with them during the summer when the vegetable bounty is in. I hate to see lots of vegetables rotting in their kitchen when I get there.


My friend made a delicious fresh salad and we had whole wheat rolls. It was a warm satisfying meal on a cold day.

I’m grateful to God for allowing me to share this gift with the homeless. God bless your weekend!

Have you served a homemade meal to the unfortunate lately?
