Chicken and Rice Casserole

When Luke was born, our friends and neighbors Rusty and Rebecca were such great help. While we were in the hospital, they watched Sally. Not only that, but when we brought Luke home from the hospital after a long couple of days, we were greeted with a nice welcome home basket (full of snacks, a Moe’s gift card, and more). Then once we got settled, they brought us a home-cooked meal which included this Chicken and Rice Casserole.

I know it’s not the most picture-friendly dish, but it is so good and quickly became one of our favorite meals! As a bonus, it is so easy to make. The most labor intensive step is cooking the rice and the chicken, and I think we all know that both of those steps are pretty simple. Once they’re cooked, just throw all of the ingredients in a dish, stir to combine, and put it in your preheated oven. Serve with a loaf of crusty bread and you have a perfectly hearty week-night meal! I’m pretty sure this dish will be placed on our menu many many nights this upcoming fall!

This Chicken and Rice Casserole also makes delicious leftovers. In fact, I think some actually prefer it the next day. Because of this, I always make a double batch to assure we have plenty left over!

Thank you so much, Rebecca, for sharing this Chicken and Rice Casserole recipe with us!
