Chicken and rice recipe
Chicken and rice! Who does not like a good chicken dish and rice casserole. But the beauty here is that it is made in one skillet, it is quick and before you know that the dinner is ready to be served.
My favorite part of this casserole is the cheese and I like to put the pan under the broiler for a minute or so until the cheese melts and begins to form bubbles. Simple, fast and pure comfort food. This cannot be overcome.
