Jenn's Chicky-Cheese Casserole

Today, I made a chicken casserole, and it was pretty good. We had a large bag of frozen chicken legs and thighs that needed to be used (I needed more room in the freezer), so I did the following:

Defrosted the chicken for two days in the fridge.
Put the now-thawed chicken in the crock pot with some water, dehydrated onions, garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
Cooked it on high for several hours, until the meat started falling off the bone.

Then, I deboned the chicken and let it sit in a bowl in the fridge overnight.

The next day, I cooked some white rice, then put it in the bottom of a casserole dish.
Preheated oven to 375 degrees.
Spread out cooked chicken on top of the rice. Added some water and a can of cream of chicken soup. Mixed well.

Added a can of drained peas. Ditto for a can of drained carrots.
Put more chicky on top.
Covered in shredded cheddar cheese.

Baked for 45 minutes.

It was very good. Even the pickiest eater in the house loved it!
