Salsa Chicken With Rice Casserole Recipe

Salsa Chicken and Rice Casserole


I decided it was time again for a one dish meal, and this Salsa Chicken with Rice Casserole Recipe looked pretty good, so I decided to give it a try. This is a simple recipe, but there is quite a bit of prep time because of having to precook the chicken and rice. The original recipe called for boneless skinless chicken breasts but I decided to use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead, because they are a lot moister; they worked real well. I am sure if you prefer white meat that would be fine also. This Salsa Chicken With Rice Casserole Recipe is a delicious combination of flavors that you and your Family will love. The next time you are looking for a one meal dish recipe, give it a try.
