This recipe can either take no time at all if you’ve already made the chicken, rice, and veggies. But if not, do not fear! It might take a minute to get this casserole ready for dinner, so why don’t you double it and freeze one. Next time – no prep!
Roasted peppers, onions, and zucchini work great in this recipe, but don’t buy anything new – use what you’ve got. Broccoli, carrots, or butternut squash could be fun.
