HONG KONG CHICKEN CASSEROLE

Here's a recipe from an old cookbook that I'm definitely tweaking! It calls for 2 cups of cubed zucchini, but I'm not a fan, so I'm going to substitute a cup each of celery and water chestnuts. Sounds much better to me!
This dish goes from freezer to oven.

How to Make HONG KONG CHICKEN CASSEROLE

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the rice in 1-1/3 cups unsalted water according to package directions; drain. In a large saucepan, cook onion in oil till crisp-tender. Add soup, 1/4 cup soy sauce, and sugar. Bring to a boil, then stir in the cooked rice, the chicken and all the remaining ingredients except the extra soy sauce.
  2. Cool quickly and put mixture into a 2-qt. rectangular freezer-to-oven baking dish. Cover tightly, seal, label, and freeze.
  3. To serve, bake frozen casserole, covered, in a pre-heated 400-degree oven for 1 hour. Uncover, stir casserole, and bake an additional 30 minutes.

    Serve with additional soy sauce, if desired.
    1/2 cup whole cashews or almonds may be stirred in for the last half hour.
