    1. I haven’t tried it with cooked chicken, but I’m sure it would be fine. If you try it, let us know how it turned out.

    2. Loved this recipe, perfect for a weeknight. I used Minute Rice and the precooked bacon meant for the microwave, and it was super easy to put together and pretty quick to make that way. I made it exactly as the recipe says except using 2 cups of rice based on the uncooked amount (so whatever that yielded cooked) and served with steamed asparagus. Kids and husband liked it too, so we’ll definitely be having this again.

  1. This quick and easy dinner was delicious and very filling. It’s also easy on the budget which is an added bonus! I loved it as is, but I think that next time I want to try adding some garlic pepper seasoning to the sauce mixture for even more flavor. I served it with some steamed broccoli to round out the meal.

  2. I added some carrots, celery, and diced onion to layer over my chicken, I'll let you know how it turns out. My family loves "Pot Pie" style dishes, and it's a sneaky way to get in a few veggies!

  3. can you cut chicken breasts into tenders? Do you cook the chicken first and then bake? Or does it cook fully while baking? Don't want to put raw meat on top of the rice and get anyone sick. Thank you!

        1. I’m glad y’all asked about using uncooked chicken because I wasn’t sure either! I’m cooking this tonight

  4. I was just sitting here thinking what to make for my picky kids as they hardly eat anything without cheese..I got excited when I realized I have all these ingredients in my kitchen and deep freezer so no trips to the store! Yay gonna give it a try tonight. Thanks for posting! I’ll circle back and tell you if it makes it in their bellies or the wall LOL!

    1. You can use boneless chicken breasts and cut them into strips if you can’t find the chicken tenderloins. Do not cook the chicken first. It bakes in the casserole

    1. I think quinoa would be a great swap for the rice! I like to add some "riced" cauliflower to the rice just to include some veggies.
