King Ranch Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by venus2

The King Ranch was the largest ranch in the US for many generations. They were famous for their hospitality. Everyone who eats this casserole LOVES it! This recipe is so easy to make ahead and it freezes well. I'm not sure if it actually originated on the King Ranch or not.
