EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If fresh chicken breast tenders are not available, frozen (thawed) chicken tenders (not breaded) may be used. Or substitute boneless, skinless chicken breast halves that have been cut lengthwise into thirds.

Leftover ham from a holiday meal can be used in this recipe. Slice it thin, and cut enough strips to cover the rice.

A salad of mixed greens or fresh arugula and sliced red pears complete this easy chicken casserole meal.
