It's no secret that cooking inside a small RV kitchen can be frustrating, but it doesn't have to be. Once you've compiled a list of simple and quick RV recipes, you can start cooking meals on the road faster than you can order a burger at the drive through. So before you give up on cooking inside your RV, create a cookbook with these easy dinner recipes.

Easy Chicken Casserole

What you'll need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 family-size box of rice/pasta mix (Rice-A-Roni works fine)
  • 1 small can mushrooms (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 large can green chiles (drained and diced)
  • 1 small can olives (chopped and drained)
  • 1 small container sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Cook the chicken for roughly 15 minutes on each side. Make sure the breasts are thoroughly cooked through, then cut them into bite-size pieces.
  2. Cook the rice/pasta mix according to the directions on the box.
  3. Layer the green chiles on the bottom of the casserole dish, then layer the chicken, rice/pasta mix, mushrooms, olives, cheese and sour cream (in that order) on top.
  4. Bake the casserole for roughly 15 minutes, then serve it in six even portions.
