I believe it would be 3 cups of cooked rice. 6 cups of rice would be an out of balance casserole -- waaaayyyyy too much starch!!!

I believe there may be an error in the rice amount: 3 c. rice, cooked will give you about 6 c. rice. Surely it does not require this much. If it is meant to be 3 c. cooked rice, you would start with about 1 & 1/2 c. raw rice, which, when cooked doubles giving you 3 c. cooked rice.

Since there is no answer to the first comment, I assume the rice amount is 3 c of uncooked rice (which is to be cooked and added to the ingredients). I agree that's a lot of rice for two chicken breasts, but the casserole will go farther with more rice.

I'm confused about the rice. Is it suppose to be 3 cups of cooked rice. 3 cups of rice, cooked seems like a lot of rice.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The recipe has been amended to let readers know that legs may substitute for the breast meat. The Editors of RecipeLion.com

the picture for this chicken recipe shows chicken legs not cubed breasts
