I love the mexican flavor of this simple casserole. I make it in the oven rather than the microwave. I bake at 350 for about 25 minutes and it turns out great!

This recipe was very easy & would have been very fast if I had used precooked chicken. (I didn't want to use the canned stuff.) I also made some changes, but only minor ones. I used cream of chicken soup (not everyone in the house likes mushrooms), omitted the chilies & used jalepeno montery jack cheese instead. I also threw in some medium cheddar cheese. We were amazed that this tasted so good! We will definitely make it again.

This was okay but nothing special. I used fresh chicken, real onion, and long grain rice instead of the canned/dried/instant which I think improved the flavor, but it was still bland and could have used some more seasonings.
