This has been one of my favorite easy chicken casseroles for over 40 years. I love that it has the meat and side in one dish. Add a salad and dinner is ready. My Betty Crocker cookbook got alot of use when I was a newlywed back then. She used chicken breasts in her recipe. I found they dry out with that long of a cooking time, so I prefer chicken thighs. If using breasts, I suggest maybe using minute rice instead of long grain. Reduce the cooking time to maybe 30 minutes and then 12-15 minutes after removing the foil. I add the pepper, garlic, & parsley listed, but you can omit if you choose.
