Easy Chicken Pilaf Casserole

“This wonderful chicken/rice casserole is a favorite in our house, and it is often requested for supper (Tip: any left over cooked chicken (or cooked turkey, I always freeze a whole cooked turkey breast)... just freeze and use in recipes that call for cooked chicken, that way you will always have it on hand, and ready to use). Also, this recipe is great made with cooked turkey instead of chicken. Prep time does not include cooking the rice.”
