I found this recipe via Pinterest. I've had it pinned for a while, and I finally got around to trying it. Let me tell you, this is delicious. It is packed full of chicken, cheese and ham. YUM! This best part about this dish is that it is really easy to make. I used minute rice for the cooked rice and half of a rotisserie chicken. I had the casserole assembled by the time the oven preheated.
This casserole is best after it has cooled for about 5 or 10 minutes. It is also good reheated. You could assemble this the night before and bake it when you get home from work. I also think this would freeze well. This makes a lot. Next time I am going to split this between two pans and freeze one for later.
