This is a "Top of the List Casserole" for my husband & me. It is something about the wild rice and the other ingredients that go so well with each other. All the ingredients can be from your shelf and/or freezer. I have served this to family and friends alike and everyone has liked it.

Hail to the dinner casserole! This reminds us of an old-fashioned chicken and rice casserole ... with a twist. Adding mushrooms, pimentos, and wild rice makes this chicken casserole a little extra special. Overall, this dish is creamy and cheesy with great flavor. It's nice to prepare dinner and have meat and veggies combined... a delicious timesaver.

Tip: If you want your onions soft, saute them for a few minutes before adding them to the casserole. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
