Brown Rice Casserole

Posted By Sharon On April 19, 2012 @ 5:30 pm In chicken,Homemade,Recipes,rice | 4 Comments

This casserole is a nice way to add more fresh vegetables, and some whole grain rice, to the dinner menu.  I used celery and broccoli since this was what we had available. You can substitute this for your favorite fresh vegetables, or whatever you have on hand. I also used a can of cream corn, to bring an added fun flavor, and a little creaminess.  My teenage sons loved this!
