Everybody loves this one! It's an easy, delicious chicken, rice and corn casserole that is big enough to feed a crowd (you may halve the recipe, if desired.) It's great for using up holiday leftovers because you can use turkey instead of chicken. Use fresh sweet corn if available. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do; it's an original, developed with my love for good, down-home food and family.
