Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Casserole

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (314 votes)

In Minnesota, chicken, mushrooms and wild rice are often bound together in a casserole with cream of mushroom soup. We forgo the sodium-rich canned soup and make a light, creamy sauce that gets depth of flavor from dry sherry and Parmesan cheese. If you already have cooked chicken, use 4 cups and skip Step 2.



READER'S COMMENT:
"The recipe turned out good. If you like casseroles that are usually made with of the condensed soup, you will probably really enjoy this dish. I don't use condensed soup so this was a nice way to prepare this type of a dish without all...

Awesome Casserole

I also amended the recipe a bit. I cheated with a rotisserie chicken. I used an onion and 2 cloves of garlic instead of the leeks. I also did not cook off all the mushroom liquid or sherry. Instead of mixing the flour to the mushrooms, I blended it into the milk and added this to the mushroom mixture, cooking until thickened. I found this created a moist but not runny casserole. Finally, I mixed everything together instead of layering it. It was very tasty. I used a gluten free flour mix and it worked perfect, too.

Needs some tweaking

I made the following tweaks the 2nd time and getting better:
2 Times the amount of Rice
Braised the Chicken w/ some Rustic Blend Spices
No Leeks, 1 Whole Vidalia Onion Diced
3 Stalks of Celery Chopped
3 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/2 cup Flour

Ease of Preperation, Make Ahead, Serves A Lot

Needs more spices

I make this at home all the time, but I use sage sausage instead of chicken. It gives the right spices. My kids loves this dish!!!

Yummy

This dish turned out fantastic. I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers. These are the changes I made:
1 cup of rice instead of 1/2 cup
3 cups of milk instead of 2
added celery and fresh garlic with the leeks
cooked chicken in skillet with olive oil, garlic salt, pepper
added rosemary, parsley, and garlic salt
used broccoli instead of green beans

This dish had tons of flavor and made a lot of food. Looking forward to the leftovers!

hearty meal that makes a lot of food
