Spanish Rice and Chicken Recipe

Spanish Rice and Chicken Recipe

My mother has always been an avid cook, and my sister, two brothers and I were raised on this casserole. When I polled our family to see which recipe I should share, this fresh-tasting, well-seasoned chicken casserole came out on the top of the list. I know you'll enjoy is as much as we do. -Cindy Clark, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
