When it comes to quick, easy and delicious dinners, nothing comes close to my Chicken and Rice Casserole! This is a family favorite in our house because it tastes absolutely amazing. The kids simply love it and I love it too because it is so easy to prepare.

I can make it in the morning and it will be ready to bake in the oven when I get home. Once cooked, the chicken is unbelievably juicy and tender, the rice is cooked perfectly and there is a creamy rich flavorful sauce. What’s not to love about this casserole?

I use scallions, broccoli, and tomato in my chicken and rice casserole, but you could add bell peppers, mushrooms or any other vegetables you like to change it up.

To make my Chicken and Rice Casserole, you will need the following ingredients:
