I've been making this recipe for many years. It came from a friend but I've tweaked it a bit over time. Very good comfort food and the kids have always loved it.

This is a good tasting meal in one dish. It was not hard to make either. I used 3 chicken breasts, my frozen asparagus from our garden and since I did not have onion salt I just sprinkled 3/4 teaspoon of the onion flakes on top of the rice. The white sauce/roux was nice and creamy, I made sure I cooked the butter/flour mixture about 2 minutes so I'd not get a floury taste to the sauce. I think this could have fed 8 people it is really filling! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. This is a keeper!
