Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 3325�F.
  • Lightly coat a shallow 3-quart casserole with the cooking spray.
  • Set aside.
  • Cut a slice from the root end of each onion so they stand upright. Cut off the top quarter of the onions.
  • Cut a cone shape into each onion and, using a small spoon, scoop out the centers, leaving a shell about 1/4-inch thick.
  • Finely chop the centers of the onions and set aside.
  • Cook the onion shells in boiling water to cover until the shells are tender but still hold their shape.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the onions from the water and drain upside down on paper towels.
  • Place the cooked rice over the bottom of the prepared casserole. Sprinkle with the minced ham.
  • Crumble the ground chicken into a large nonstick skillet.
  • Set over medium-high heat and saute until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes, breaking up the clumps of chicken with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the reserved chopped onion, and the garlic.
  • Saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, parsley, and thyme.
  • Taste and season with salt (if using) and pepper.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Arrange the onion shells over the rice and spoon the chicken mixture into the onion shells, mounding slightly on top.
  • Sprinkle with the cheese and pour the evaporated milk over all.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, until onions are tender and the rice is crusty brown.
  • Serve at once.
