Reviews for Chicken and Rice Casserole
"family favorite and feeds a hoard, Good too with broccoli vs peas and 1 tsp cumin mixed with soups, whole new taste. I layer mine, chicken, broccoli, rice and spread soup over top. Can't beat this recipe."
"Prepared this dish with a few changes and it was great. Saute onion, celery, red bell pepper, and garlic in olive oil, then reduced down white wine and chicken broth. Season to taste with salt, etc. Stir soy sauce into soup mixture and finish the recipe as directed. Very good."
"Made this for my Mom. We loved the crunch. Great recipe"
"This dish was bland. Needed a lot more seasoning. It would be much better with the right spices."
"My five guests enjoyed this very much and I am already making it again...one week after the first time I made it. Delicious and easy."
