~ Savory Chicken & Rice Bake ~ Easy & Delish!

Cassie *


This is comfort food at its best. This dish takes me back to when I was a kid. We'd have it monthly.
I did tweak my moms recipe to include more sauce, but everything else is the same for the most part. My family just loves it and are never any leftovers, but if there were they'd be wonderful the next day. So tender you can cut the chicken with a fork.
Fix it and forget it, and no peeking!
