Topped with crushed corn chips, shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes, this marvelous meal-in-one is as pretty as it is tasty. I serve it to company along with bread and dessert, and it always gets compliments. —Dana Wise
Crunched for time? Consider this fast-to-fix chicken and rice bake from Doris Barb of El Dorado, Kansas. After popping it in the oven, you can toss together a salad and have dinner on the table in no time.
"The recipe for this almond-topped casserole has been in our family for years," notes Sharon Skildum of Maple Grove, Minnesota. "It's as comforting as chicken rice soup, so it's on our dinner table often."
I sometimes make this recipe with leftover chicken and rice. My children keep me running most of the day, so a quick casserole for dinner helps smooth out bumps in our schedule.—Beth Pallwitz, Tacoma, Washington
This simple yet delicious recipe originated with my aunt and was passed on to my mom. It's great for a luncheon...or, served with salad and rolls, for supper. With three children, I need all the fast dishes I can find!
