This casserole is easy to make and uses inexpensive ingredients, but is bland as it is, so I made the following changes to mine.
When cooking the chicken, I added minced garlic, coarse ground pepper, and a few dashes of ground red pepper. I substituted 1 cup of the white rice for a 1-cup pkg of seasoned yellow rice mix. I also added garlic powder, white pepper, a few dashes of poultry seasoning, and more ground red pepper into the rice mixture before putting into the oven. Ten minutes before the casserole was done, I added shredded monterey jack cheese with jalapenos on the top.
NOTE: It is important that you use the correct size casserole dish to ensure your results are neither too dry nor too wet.
With my add-ons, the end result was a very good dish overall. My family prefers dishes with some kick and depth of flavor, and this recipe delivers. There were no leftovers with this! My husband loves this dish and can't wait to have it again.
