All-in-one casseroles take some of the stress out of meal planning, and Cheesy Chicken Divan With Rice includes a grain, vegetable, protein and dairy in every serving. It's inexpensive to make, easy to prepare, and just as delicious reheated as it is the day you make it. Cheesy Chicken Divan With Rice also freezes well, so it's a great choice for a recipe to double and save half for later.
