Lime Chicken & Rice Casserole

My Grandpa always made this chicken and rice dish called Chicken and Rice Roger because it was cheap and delicious. I took his original recipe and tweaked it to have a Mexican flair but still keep it frugal for feeding a large family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
