Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry This is a yummy, cheesy chicken casserole created from a memory of one I had at a banquet at the University of Cincinnati 20 years ago. It is a quick throw and go recipe, perfect when the family has to be fed quickly. Use cooked chicken breast from the deli sliced about 3/4" thick, cooked rice, cooked bacon bits, etc. and it will come together in less than ten minutes.
