3cups Cheddar or Colby Jack CheeseGrated (about 9-12 oz ungrated)
1 1/2cups Milk
1 1/2tspSaltPlus more to taste
1tspGround Black PepperPlus more to taste
8 or 16countCrescent Rolls
1 1/2cups RiceUncooked
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add chicken, garlic (if using), and salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 tsp each).
Cook chicken until browned and no longer pink (about 6-8 minutes).
To a 9" x 13" baking dish, add chicken, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, milk, and additional salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 tsp). Stir until mixture is fully combined.
Add grated cheese and mix until cheese is distributed throughout the sauce.
Open crescent rolls, and roll into crescent roll shape. Evenly distribute rolls on top of the sauce mixture.
Bake for 15 minutes until the tops of the crescent rolls are golden brown. Remove pan from the oven. Using a fork, flip the crescent rolls. Then, continue to bake the mixture for an additional 20-25 minutes until tops of the crescent rolls are browned and edges of sauce is bubbling.
While the sauce is cooking, add 4 cups water, 1 tsp of salt, and chicken bouillon to a large pot and bring to a boil.
Add rice to pot and stir to prevent rice from sticking to bottom of pot.
Cook rice for 15-18 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until rice is fully cooked and just barely has a slight bite to it.
Drain rice in a colander.
Top rice with sauce and crescent rolls, and enjoy!
