Make It Ahead: Cover casseroles tightly with foil, and freeze unbaked up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Bake as directed. (Casserole may also be baked frozen. Plan to double the baking times.) To Microwave One Frozen, Unbaked 8-inch Square Casserole: Casserole must be in a microwave-safe dish. Cover dish with wax paper. Microwave at HIGH 15 to 16 minutes or until casserole is bubbly, giving dish a half-turn once. To Microwave One Thawed, Unbaked 8-inch Square Casserole: Follow directions to microwave a frozen, unbaked casserole, reducing microwave time to 7 to 8 minutes. Kitchen Express: Use 2 deli-roasted chickens (about 2 pounds each) in place of boiled chickens. Use 1 cup dry sherry and 3 ¼ cups (26 ounces) canned chicken broth to cook rice.
