"Yum! After reading the other reviews, I substituted 1/2 chicken broth and 1/2 white wine for the water. (I also used a boxed mix of wild rice with the seasoning packet) The thyme was a wonderful accent to the chicken and wine flavors. Personally, I will leave out the mushrooms next time. This is pretty flexible as to what veggies you use. *Please note, (for those of you who make this after a long day, and/or you are tired) this calls for UNcooked rice mix."

"Instead of using the Homemade Rice Mix, you can use one cup of rice and use chicken broth instead of water and add a few more seasoninings such as garlic and onion powder and a little dry thyme."

"I agree on the onion salt review from past. I would use onion powder. I will also bake uncovered. After 60 minutes mine was still soupy. A good and easy recipe."

"This casserole is very good. I prefer using onion powder in place of onion salt; leaves no aftertaste. Will make this casserole dish over and over again."
