Hey everyone! It’s Jenna from A Savory Feast here to share another recipe with you. If you love Fall comfort foods, you’ve got to try this Fall Chicken & Rice Casserole. It’s packed with healthy ingredients like butternut squash, asparagus and onions, all mixed in with savory chicken and rice.

Fall Casserole Ingredients

This Fall I’ve been noticing a lot of butternut squash recipes going around Pinterest. I’ve been itching to try a few recipes myself! I picked a butternut squash up at the store and knew it would be the perfect thing to add to a Fall casserole.

This recipe is great for an easy weeknight meal. It doesn’t take long to throw together, and you’ll probably have plenty of leftovers to enjoy the next day.

Fall Chicken and Rice Casserole Recipe

This casserole would be really easy to customize based on your tastes and what ingredients you have in the house. You could switch out the asparagus for broccoli or add some cheese. It’s up to you!

I added extra flavor to this dish by cooking the rice in chicken broth instead of water. It tastes sooooo good!
