Sausage and Rice Casserole

So you have options when making this dish. If you do use the Rice-a-Roni, omit the rice, water, and beef base and make up the Rice-a-Roni according to box directions and layer that on the bottom of the casserole dish.

This crispy fried chicken sandwich recipe is better than Chik-Fil-A, Popeye's or McDonald's! The chicken breast is brined in pickle juice, breaded with flavorful seasonings, fried until golden brown, and then piled on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayonnaise. Serve the sandwich with a side of waffle fries and homemade Chik-Fil-A sauce for dipping!
