How to Make Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place chicken, onion, celery, 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper, and curry powder in large pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cook until chicken is cooked through; about 45 minutes to an hour. (I like to do this step in the crock pot on low in the morning before I go to work; then the chicken is done when I get home.).
  • 2Remove chicken from chicken stock; reserve enough chicken stock to replace water needed to make wild rice. Remove chicken from the bone and tear into bite-sized pieces; discard bones, gristle and skin.
  • 3Prepare wild rice according to package directions, replacing water with broth from chicken preparation. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 4When rice has cooked, add cream of mushroom soup and sour cream; mix well. Add mushrooms, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper; mix well. Add chicken; mix well.
  • 5Place in casserole dish; place in preheated oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until casserole has heated through and top is golden brown.
