Finding certain ingredients in the grocery store can be challenging, especially right now, so having recipes that call for everyday ingredients is extremely important. It’s even better if those recipes call for ingredients you already have on hand. That’s why Southern Bite created this super easy and delicious Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake made with Tony Chachere’s®. It’s perfect for a quick dinner after a long day of work and school, and your family will definitely ask for seconds and thirds!
