When my mom asked me to prepare a speedy supper to feed our family, I used leftover chicken to create this casserole. Cheese and sour cream make the chicken and rice so creamy and tasty. I recently got married, and my husband, Doug, loves it, too. -Jennifer Biggs Cassel, Mediapolis, Iowa

Loved it, will make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2011

This is one of our favorite recipes so far! I did alter it a bit by adding a chopped red pepper, half a red onion and some chopped carrots and cauliflower. Trust me, no one will be able to spot the hidden veggies and the kids will love it. Excellent dinner.
