Asparagus, Chicken, Wild Rice Casserole Recipe
I found this recipe several years ago while looking for something unusual but simple I could prepare for company. I could prepare for company. It's a dish that I've served many times since then—with a salad and rolls, it makes a complete meal. My husband and I both grew up in the country. We're living in a suburb of a big city now, but we hope to move to a rural area. Meanwhile, two small children, home improvement projects, sewing and needlework keep me busy.
