  • 1 cup plain yogurt (you can use Greek yogurt, it will just be even thicker)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • teaspoon Salt and pepper to taste (I used ~3/4 salt 1 teaspoon pepper to season)
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 cups chicken breasts cooked and shredded (or use roasted/rotisserie chicken)

Notes

  • Use flour, chicken stock, and milk to DIY cream of chicken soup, if using cream of chicken soup, skip steps 1 & 2 in recipe instructions

  • Use white rice instead of brown if desired.
