Contest-Winning Chicken Wild Rice Casserole Recipe

Meet the Cook: While this special dish is perfect for a company dinner, it's also just too good not to make often for everyday family meals. We think it is very nice served with some crusty rolls or French bread. My husband and I are the parents of four children - a 6-year-old girl, a 4-year-old boy and 1-year-old twin sons. -Elizabeth Tokariuk, Lethbridge, Alberta

"Delicious casserole. Didn't have any pimiento so I substituted green peppers, used fresh mushrooms, then sauteed the peppers and mushrooms with the onions. Very flavorful."
