Chicken Rice Casserole

I think most cooks enjoy finding an easy casserole that will be a winner with their family & friends! And this one will surely do that! It can be made ahead & frozen to bake at a later time.

This one was especially easy with using boneless skinless chicken breast I had cooked in my instant pot! In no time at all I had the casserole ready to pop in the oven . I trust you will try it and enjoy it as much as we do!

2 cups instant white rice (or rice you like)

1/2 cup cooked crumbled Bacon
