How to Make Chicken Rice Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350*.

    Saute chicken, onion, mushrooms, and celery until chicken is no longer pink. If using pre-cooked chicken, saute only the vegetables.
  2. Pour rice and chicken broth into a 10 inch casserole dish. Add chicken mixture, salt and pepper, and finally spread the cream of chicken soup over the top.
  3. Cover with foil, and bake about 35 minutes, or until bubbly. If adding cheese, sprinkle over the top and return to oven until melted, about 3 minutes. Serve with a steamed vegetable.
  4. ****NOTE: I have used white, brown, wild, and Minute rice all with success. I also often use meat from a rotisserie chicken to save time.
