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

Bring to a boil, then stir in the cooked rice, the chicken and all the remaining ingredients except the extra soy sauce.

    1/2 cup whole cashews or almonds may be stirred in for the last half hour.
