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!
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.
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
"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."
"On our busy ranch, we often need meals we can put on the table in a hurry," remarks Kat Thompson, Prineville, Oregon. "This all-in-one chicken dish - with its delicate lemon flavor - fits the bill...and it's inexpensive to boot."
