Mamaw’s Chicken and Rice Casserole

Mamaw’s Chicken and Rice Casserole

I grew up using this recipe for chicken and rice casserole. It was given to my grandmother many years ago at a potluck by a woman from the church! My mother inherited it from her, and the family has always loved it. Simple and quick for a school night, and they taste even better the next day! Of course, you could use less butter on top; my mother and grandmother usually used the entire stick (you gotta love Southern ladies and their butter!).
