I am a total sucker for a good casserole.

Casseroles are great because they are so easy to make, yet taste amazing. Everyone in the family loves them. As an added bonus, we usually end up with leftovers too, which means 2 nights of dinner is done in one shot.

Chicken and Rice Casserole

This chicken and rice casserole recipe will not disappoint.

In fact, I think it is one of the best chicken casserole recipes ever, along with my chicken and dumpling casserole, ritz chicken casserole, and chicken noodle casserole. So hearty, delicious, and easy to make as well!

How to Make Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole

Begin by gathering everything that you will need for this easy chicken casserole recipe.

You will need: cooked chicken, uncooked long-grain rice, a bag of frozen peas and carrots, onion, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, paprika, poultry seasoning, salt & pepper, and butter.

I like to make a batch of shredded chicken in the crockpot or in my dutch oven and use it for my casserole recipes, but you can use any cooked chicken.

Or you can pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store and use that. Easy peasy.

  1. Followed the recipe to a T with exception of using frozen asparagus because I didn’t have peas. Turned out creamy and delicious. Used basmati rice and it was thoroughly cooked at an hour. Will be making this again, delicious!

  2. When my daughter was 8, now 40, she loved Leseur Peas, chicken breast & rice – all separately. I asked her if she would help me make them into a casserole that she would eat. She picked out Cream of Chicken Soup. For the past 32 years we have been cooking & cutting up chicken breast, usually 2 to 3 large, adding to 2 cups cooked rice, one to two cans of Leseur Peas(including liquid), one large can of cream of chicken soup(family size), salt & pepper to taste. It is a family favorite that she has taught her kids to also make as a way of getting them to eat a vegetable & also more than one thing at a time. As time has gone by we have learned we can use the whole roasted chicken from the deli area in our local grocery & use two of the 90 second packages of rice. Everything is cooked so all you have to do is mix it together in your casserole dish and heat at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. All my kids & grandkids love to make this & eat it as well! Bon Apetit!!

  3. I made this tonight. the flavor was good but after cooking for an hour and a half the rice still wasn’t cooked and the chicken was burnt on the bottom. I follow the recipe exactly. sorry but the recipe needs some work.

  4. Don’t make this. The rice won’t be done and chicken will be burnt to a crisp. Just don’t
