Our Favorite Rice

1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 can (10 1/2 oz.) Beef Consomme
1 can (10 1/2 oz.) French Onion Soup
1 jar (4.5 oz) whole mushrooms, drained
1 stick butter

Put all ingredients in a 2 1/2 quart casserole. Cover; and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Can easily be doubled.

~ I got this recipe from my friend Sandy many years ago.  It has had many names, but it always a favorite!!

Pesto Chicken

4 boneless chicken breasts
1/3 cup pesto sauce
1/3 cup dijon mustard
     1/3 cup mozzarella cheese (extra)
     mozzarella cheese (sprinkle on top)

Cut a slit in the chicken breasts. Mix the pesto, dijon and half of the mozzarella. Stuff chicken breasts with half the mixture and spread the other half over the top.
Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella over top of chicken breasts in last few minutes of cooking.
