Chicken and Rice Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kristi Nicole

I made this tonight to try to use up ingredients I already had in order to avoid a trip to the grocery store. I thought it turned out pretty good!!! My toddler even ate it!

This was very good and so easy! I found it a bit salty so would use less lemon pepper next time (maybe it's the generic brand I used). I chose this recipe because I had some leftover gravy and I LOVE rice, but to tell the truth, I didn't expect much. Whoever heard of baking raw rice without covering the pan with foil? But I heated the broth as directed and it came out fine, maybe a bit crunchy just on the edges but we cajuns like a bit of crunch. It wasn't quite done at 30 minutes, so I turned the oven off and left it in there another 10-15 min. I also used fresh mushrooms 'cause I hate the canned ones. Thanks for the recipe Kristi!
