- 1 1/3 cups uncooked rice (I used Minute Rice)
- 1 jar mild salsa (24 oz)...or you can use the heat amount of your choice
- 1 can of cream of chicken soup
- 1 8 oz container of sour cream
- 1/3 cup of water
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 (3 lb) chicken, cut up, skinned (I used 5 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts...or you could use 4 larger ones)
- 2 tsp. paprika
Preheat oven to 350. I like to put my chicken in some lime juice and water (about 1 1/2 limes and the rest water to cover the chicken) just to give it some extra zing. You don't have to do it if you don't like lime. While that's sitting, mix together first 6 ingredients. Grease bottom of 13 x 9 dish. Spoon the mixture into the dish. Take chicken out of lime juice, pat dry just a little bit, and spray with cooking spray. Lay the chicken on top of the rice mixture. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake, covered, for 45 min. Uncover and bake for 30 more minutes. Enjoy! Let me know how you like it!
I LOVE comments, so don't be shy! If you don't have a google account, you can comment as an annonymous person...I don't mind! :-)

I couldn't just read one entry...I read several. And I'll probably read it more and actually do it as a weekly devotion. Thanks, Mom!
One more fun thing. I love our family's homemade chocolate ice cream. It's the best. Really. It tastes like a Wendy's frosty. If you have a regular sized ice cream churn (that you add the ice and rock salt to as it spins), add these ingredients to the container...
- 12 oz container of whipped cream (I used the generic...just as good!)
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 half gallon of chocolate milk
I whisked the ingredients before closing it up and turning on the churn. You'll love it! I made it twice this past weekend and it's almost all gone!

My actual birthday morning, Mom got up and fixed a wonderful brunch of pancakes, sausage, and we had some doughnuts again! We headed back to Eastman that afternoon and had a cookout with some friends of ours from church. It was fun, too. We had some great food and fellowship. That night we also went to see the fireworks. They have a big fireworks display at the Dodge Co. stadium. We parked in a nearby lot and enjoyed watching while the kids were sound asleep. They had a busy couple of days! As I told a friend today...my tank has been filled! I have been blessed with gifts, but the greatest gift was the love that I was shown by my sweet husband, parents, family members, and friends!
I hope you all had a great July 4th! God bless!
