Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by ckmclements

Took this recipe from an ad in one of those Sunday paper inserts. The recipe serves 4, and I would suggest that it be made for that many people. I made it for just my husband and myself, and it just wasn't quite as good as reheated leftovers.

I made this according to the directions with the following changes: Instead of uncooked breasts I used 2 cups of cooked thigh and leg meat (what I had on hand) and I added 5 slices of cooked, crumbled bacon. Everyone in my house (there are 5 of us) ate this, including my 2 yr old and ultra-picky 10 year old. I will double it next time because if really does only serve 4. Great recipe!
