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