With chicken, green beans and the nice crunch of water chestnuts and almonds, this casserole has everything you need. Using ready-to-serve wild rice makes putting it together a breeze. —Lorraine Hanson, Independence, Iowa
"The recipe for this almond-topped casserole has been in our family for years," notes Sharon Skildum of Maple Grove, Minnesota. "It's as comforting as chicken rice soup, so it's on our dinner table often."
I sometimes make this recipe with leftover chicken and rice. My children keep me running most of the day, so a quick casserole for dinner helps smooth out bumps in our schedule.—Beth Pallwitz, Tacoma, Washington
This simple yet delicious recipe originated with my aunt and was passed on to my mom. It's great for a luncheon...or, served with salad and rolls, for supper. With three children, I need all the fast dishes I can find!
