Wild Rice Chicken Casserole

 Wild Rice Chicken Casserole
My husband of 51 years loves to eat and I love to cook, so we're both happy when I make this casserole. It's nice and creamy with a little crunch from almonds. The chicken is canned, but you'd never know it from the taste.—Mrs. Darrell Plinsky, Wichita, Kansas
