Easy Chicken & Rice Bake

Jeanne Gliddon


Polly, my BFF, gave me this recipe years ago and I have always loved it for its flavor and ease of preparation. Over the years I had to tweak one ingredient because the old recipe called for MJB Chicken Flavored Rice Mix and it can no longer be found. However, with my addition of the Rice A Roni, I can truthfully say that it does not change the flavor in any way. I hope you will try this delicious meal and enjoy it as much as my family does.
