Mandarin Chicken Rice Bake

This is probably one of the easiest recipes I've made in a while...all b/c it was a one dish meal.  I use to make casseroles all the time, but hardly ever do anymore.  This was actually pretty good, and really simple to make.  Great for a quick meal...just prepare for the long bake time, it takes 1 hr and 15 minutes!  But, you have all that free time while it's baking, almost like a crock pot meal.  One thing odd is, either my family eats a ton (which could likely could be the case) and Eat at Home eats like birds or they used it as a side dish.  I don't know but, it hardly fed my 2 boy, me and hubby.  There was just enough, I don't know how it would even begin to serve 6 as said on her recipe.  Oh well, just plan for that, you can either double the recipe or make it for 3-4 ppl.

Chop up the veggies.

Toss everything together and mix.

Bake at 350 for 1 hr and 15 minutes.

And serve.  So easy!  (It doesn't look that great, but trust me, it's good!)
