Reviews for Wild Rice Chicken Casserole
"It was really runny, I wonder if you could cut back on the liquid and how much. I enjoyed the taste, my 2 year old loved it! I would put more chicken in next time."
"I did make several changes to the recipe. Cooked my own wild rice with brown rice, fresh parsley and garlic. Fresh chicken rather than canned. It turned out more like soup, but the flavor was very good."
