Suggested order of preparation: This recipe has multiple components that need to be cooked separately and come together at the end. Start with poaching the chicken and cooking the rice first (they take roughly the same amount of time). While the chicken and rice are cooking prepare the breadcrumb topping and the frozen vegetables and set those aside. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred or cut it into bite-sized pieces. Finally, make the creamy sauce and build the casserole.
