Creative cooks can you help me come up with a dinner with the contents in my house?

I am stuck on what to make for dinner tomorrow. I am not a very creative cook, really not much of a cook at all. I want the use up some frozen breaded chicken chunks that I got in our November Angelfood box.

Here are the ingredients I have in my house:
The frozen breaded chicken chunks
Frozen fries
Frozen carrot slices
Rice a Roni Herb and Butter
Rice a Roni Whole Grain Blends Roasted Garlic Italiano
Rice a Roni Parmesan and Romano Cheese
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Golden Mushroom Soup
A can of cut green beans (I also have frozen green beans)
Stove Top Turkey Stuffing
A jar of artichoke hearts
BBQ sauce
Chicken gravy pack
Potatoes
Can of 2% condensed milk
Box of Mac N Cheese
Ramen noodles
Eggs

Can anyone think of a good casserole or other meal that would work with some of the ingredients I have ? Thanks for your help

cook up rice a roni of your choice, (the parm one would best for this but any would work) according to package directions, drain and dice artichoke hearts and mix in with rice. meanwhile bake chicken chunks in oven until nice and crispy (or however you like them)put each serving of rice on a plate top with chicken chunks and grated parm or romano cheese. serve with side of green beans.

You could always make a good ol' green bean casserole. You could sub homemade breadcrumbs for the onions if you have bread around.

You could serve it with the chicken or the roni or both.

allrecipes.com has a great feature where you can search for recipes by the ingredients you have on hand - it's saved me many times!

I'm not very creative either. I would honestly just have the chicken chunks, french fries and the beans or carrots. Plain and simple.

Whenever I get creative the family complains. lol
