Chicken n Rice Casserole - Dee Dee's

Diane Atherton


Casseroles can be a cooks best friend at times! They are quick, easy and full of flavor.

Most casseroles are loaded with heavy sauces and cheese, which is what makes them so tasty and inviting. Even though this recipe is on the lighter side, it's not lacking in flavor.

Adapted from my 1999 Southern Living Cookbook.
