This dish was fairly easy to make and seemed so fancy, even though the presentation wasn't the neatest. The almonds were a great touch. I think it would taste just as good with frozen broccoli instead of the green beans. My husband, who typically isn't a fan of casseroles had seconds! I'll be making this again!
Chicken, Mushroom & Wild Rice Casserole
From EatingWell: September/October 2010
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.

This was not an EW winner for me. We found it to be extremely bland. Perhaps more salt and pepper, maybe some additional herbs. I think the leeks just aren't strong enough to carry the dish.
this is a hearty casserole that my family cannot get enough of. I have made it twice in one week and I am getting requests to make it again. it does take a little bit of time, but if you prep some of the items ahead of time its not to hard to put together. I would agree, I don't think layering the rice, chicken, green beans and then topping is necessary. Next time I am going to try 1 cup of rice and not layering.
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 the extra sodium and processed ingredients. I made it for the parents who really loved it. I followed the recipe as written. It reheated well the next day also. Just as the article said, it is something that works well at a church function.
IT WAS A VERY GOOD MEAL AND VERY TASTEFUL
