Chicken Rice Casserole

Casseroles are one of my favorite dishes and this one is so easy to put together. The already cooked chicken makes this recipe extra fast.—Marcia Hostetter, Canton, New York

    Since I didn't have potato chips, I used Italian flavored bread crumbs and dried onion rings. Family loved it. Daughter suggested adding hard boiled eggs next time since I have another similar chicken rice recipe.

    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.

    Please don't rate recipes that you have not tried.  Some of us actually depend on those star ratings to decide if we want to make a recipe or not.  Thanks from a lot of people who feel like I do.

    Mixed the leftovers with chicken broth for a delicious chicken and rice soup the next day.

    This has been a family favorite ever since it first ran 15 years ago! I lost my copy and came to look for it on line. My eight kids ask me to make this!
