This Old School Chicken and Rice Casserole is seriously delicious! We absolutely LOVED this casserole. We ate it for lunch and leftover for a couple of days afterwards. SO good! This casserole is super easy to make. It was ready to go in the oven in minutes. This makes a TON. Next time I might split it between two pans and freeze one for later.
I used a whole rotisserie chicken in this casserole. If you don't have a rotisserie chicken, you will need about 4 cups of cooked chicken for the casserole. This recipe uses three cans of Cream of Whatever soup. I always buy the 98% fat free or Healthy Choice to cut down on fat and sodium. Our favorite part of the casserole was all the yummy parmesan cheese on top! YUM! This was a huge hit in our house. Chicken Legs has already requested this again for dinner. I can't wait!
