Chicken and Rice Casserole Recipe

A good chicken rice casserole is typical homemade “mom food”. The kind of food we grew up with, came home from college looking forward to eating as a home-cooked meal, and what we want to serve when memories of family meals are made.

This recipe doesn’t have the usual suspects…creamed canned soups. The time it takes to make the real sauce that serves as the base of this dish is a few minutes longer than popping open a can the premade soups. The difference in taste is definitely noticeable.

Easy to make and wonderfully simple, tasty food is a treasure. Serve this up when you want a nostalgic chicken casserole and a cozy family dinner.
