Growing up in Texas, almost every mom-and-pop restaurant has a fridge full of take-away casseroles, and king ranch chicken is one of the most popular. It's a hearty meal for cold, dark Winter nights, especially during the crazy holiday season. Plus, it's always good to have a casserole in the freezer for a homemade yet simple dinner option.
