Mom's Green Rice Recipe
MY MOTHER-IN-LAW always served green rice with her chicken casserole. She was a great cook, and the local newspaper featured her several times as "cook of the week". This creation of hers is one of our family's favorites. I'm thrilled to share it with Reminisce readers. -Nancy Beatty, Springfield, Illinois
